US blacklists Chinese organizations over alleged ethnic abuses

The United States this week blacklisted more than two dozen Chinese organizations over their role in the purported abuse of ethnic Uighurs in the country’s Xinjiang province.

Twenty-eight separate organizations have been forbidden from purchasing U.S. goods without the permission of Washington. The groups included technology organizations and government bureaus.

The allegedly complicit groups were added to the “Entity List,” a list of groups prohibited from engaging in normal trade with U.S. companies.
