China Rebukes House Bill Condemning Crackdown On Uighurs

China has responded with swift condemnation after U.S. Congress overwhelmingly approved a bill targeting its mass crackdown on ethnic Muslim minorities. The bill decries what China describes as educational centers and the U.S. says are detention facilities.

The bill, which passed on Tuesday night in a 407-1 vote, condemns Beijing’s treatment of the Muslim minority in Western China. It comes days after a measure supporting Hong Kong protesters.
