China's alleged treatment of Uighur Muslims has sparked an international outcry. This week, Turkey's Ministry of Foreign affairs released a statement, accusing China of torturing Uighurs in these camps and subjecting them to political brainwashing. Turkey also stated it had information that the Uighur folk poet Abduraheem Hayat, who has been detained for over two years, had died under China's custody. But state-owned China Radio International's Turkish edition released this video to show that the poet is still, in fact, alive.

Apple, Google urged to remove app that lets Saudi men track wives l Al Jazeera English

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xDAC93n-WHI
Apple and Google are being pressed to remove an app that lets men track their wives and daughters in Saudi Arabia. In a letter addressed to the CEOs of both tech giants, US Senator Ron Wyden requested that Apple's App Store and the Google Play Store stop promoting the Saudi e-government portal "Absher" which he said was being used to continue the "abhorrent surveillance and control of women". Available to download for free, Absher allows Saudi citizens and residents to access a host of services including getting a passport, a birth certificate or paying traffic violations. Political science professor Bessma Momani tells Al Jazeera that while the app is an example of gender discrimination, it does make it easier for women to travel by replacing the need for filing paperwork. - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: https://www.aljazeera.com/

๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ญ Thailand to free Bahraini refugee footballer Hakeem al-Araibi | Al Jazeera English

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7wmEo4Eq6I
Thailand will free a Bahraini footballer, arrested more than two months ago after Bahrain abandoned its bid to seek his extradition, a prosecutor in the case has said. Monday's decision comes after the 25-year-old footballer Hakeem al-Araibi was jailed for weeks in Bangkok's Klong Prem Remand Prison. Bahrain wanted him returned to serve a 10-year prison sentence he received in absentia in 2014 for an arson attack that damaged a police station. Al-Araibi denies those charges. Al-Araibi, who fled Bahrain in 2014 and received refugee status in Australia, was arrested in November at a Bangkok airport while on his honeymoon following an Interpol notice issued at Bahrain's request.

Saudi Arabia doesn't need a United Nations-led probe or an international investigation into the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi because its "competent legal system" can handle the matter, said its minister of state for foreign affairs. Adel al-Jubeir told the US TV programme Face the Nation on Sunday that the October 2 slaying of the journalist inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul was "a massive tragedy" and denied it was sanctioned by Saudi Arabia's leadership. - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: https://www.aljazeera.com/ #khashoggi #AdelAlJubeir #SaudiArabia
