"BEIJING (AP) — A senior U.S. official says the United States would pursue sanctions on Chinese officials involved in a sweeping security crackdown in the western region of Xinjiang if they were deemed appropriate for designation under a law targeting human rights offenders.

Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Laura Stone said Wednesday that the U.S. was deeply concerned about China's detention of at least "tens of thousands" of ethnic Uighurs and other Muslims and could take action under the 2016 Global Magnitsky Act."

CNN was not there.

See Trump really does have a sense of humor.
