Japanese manga comic tells story of Uighur oppression

A Japanese artist used comic book storytelling to draw attention to the Chinese Communist Party’s persecution of Muslim ethnic minorities in western China.

Tomomi Shimizu, a manga comic–style artist, tells the story of Mihrigul Tursun, a young Uighur mother who was tortured and subjected to other brutal conditions in one of China’s detention camps in Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region camps in China.

Tursun studies, marries and has triplets in Egypt.
