U.S. and allies set to announce coordinated sanctions on China over Uyghurs 'genocide'

The United States, Canada, Britain and the European Union will announce a series of sanctions against China on Monday for what US officials have labeled a campaign of genocide against Uighur Muslims, according to two people familiar with the subject.

The sanctions are expected to vary in nature and include global Magnitsky economic sanctions against those allegedly involved in the mistreatment of Muslims in the Xinjiang region of China.

The EU this morning approved sanctions against four Chinese officials involved in the internment of hundreds of thousands of Uyghurs.
