- China is accused of locking 1 million people of the Muslim Uighur ethnic minority in detention centers or re-education camps in the country.
- According to a new Human Rights Watch report, a Uighur man was detained for changing his watch to two hours behind Beijing time.
- The man had reportedly changed his clock to Urumqi time, which follows the natural daylight schedule in the western region in Xinjiang.
- China has just one official time zone, but is so big the natural daylight schedules differ across the country.
- Changing clocks to “Urumqi time” is seen as a form of resistance against the Chinese government.
China detained a man of the Uighur ethnic minority because he set his watch to a different time from Beijing, Human Rights Watch has said in a new report.
The unnamed man was arrested for being a terrorist suspect and sent to a detention center in Xinjiang, western China, the nonprofit reported, citing a former detainee identified by the pseudonym Nur. The date of the arrest and detention was not clear.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
