Uyghur protest

A photo of Chinese President Xi Jinping is pictured on the ground as Uyghur activists protest China's treatment of Uyghurs, a recognized minority in the country, outside a court appearance for Huawei Chief Financial Officer, Meng Wanzhou, at the British Columbia Supreme Court in Vancouver on Wednesday. Meng, whose Vancouver arrest on a US warrant triggered a diplomatic row between Ottawa and Beijing, was to appear in court to fight for her release.
