US seizes 13-ton Chinese shipment of human hair, likely from Muslim Uyghurs in forced labor camps
It is estimated that over one million Uyghurs, and other ethnic minority Muslim groups, have been detained in a massive network of concentration camps in Xinjiang.
“If this highly suspicious, 13-ton shipment of human hair indeed turns out to be linked to the Uyghur concentration camps, then this is a new low – even for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) – and they will have to answer to the world community for their actions,” said National Security Council (NSC) spokesperson John Ullyot.

The ethnic minority Muslims are reportedly “subjected to torture, plus cruel and inhumane treatment. They are also victims of physical and sexual abuse, forced labor, sleep deprivation, lack of food, and forced injections. In some cases, they have known to be murdered.
