US to impose sanctions on China over Uyghur rights - report

The United States is planning to impose sanctions on senior Chinese officials over human rights abuse of Muslim minorities in the country's region of Xinjiang.

The measure will likely target Communist Party officials who are responsible for the persecution of Uyghur minorities, according to Bloomberg's report published on Wednesday.

The US State Department has already warned businesses against working with China-based entities that engage in human rights abuses. However, this report shows the Trump administration is preparing to toughen its stance against China even further.
