Uighur refugees deported back to China

Cambodia will deport 20 refugees of Uighur minority descent back to China, where human rights groups say they may be tortured or executed upon return. Hundreds of Uighurs were detained by Chinese authorities after a civil uprising, with official reports that 17 have been sentenced to death, but independent reports point to widespread use of torture extrajudicial killings, and grave human rights violations.
