By Amnesty International, , Index number: ASA 17/010/2002

This report describes the new anti-terrorism provisions in Chinese law and Amnesty International's concerns about these provisions and the crackdown against "terrorist, separatist and illegal religious activities" currently underway in the XUAR. The report points out that Amnesty International recognises the duty of states under international human rights law to protect their populations from violent criminal acts, but that such measures should be implemented within a framework of protection for all human rights.
