The Chinese government has put many Uighurs in camps, and they are torturing them, raping them, and killing them in those camps, we haven't heard a word about it on the radio, or TV. I read an article about it in my week magazine. I just now saw a video about it on the Internet. It's extremely shocking that the Chinese government is able to do these terrible things, and almost no one says a word about it.
