Hundreds of Muslim Uighurs Flee China for Fears of Persecution

 

Those who escaped on Monday had no documents and their nationality could not be determined, a Thai immigration official told Khaosod newspaper.

China's authorities blame Uighur separatists for instigating violence and the frequent unrest in Xinjiang. They have launched a widespread crackdown in Xinjiang, arresting hundreds and executing dozens in recent years.

Activists say that Uighurs have experienced economic, cultural and religious repression by the authorities over the decades, in addition to difficulties obtaining passports.

One theory for the deadly 2015 bombing of Bangkok's Erawan shrine is that it was carried out in revenge for the forcible repatriation of the Uighurs in July of that year.
