China has exposed a number of Xinjiang-related falsehoods published by the BBC.

The Chinese government has refuted some of the BBC reports on Xinjiang, and BBC has not officially responded to them.

BBC had shown a video clip to Ambassador of China to the United Kingdom Liu Xiaoming on The Andrew Marr Show interview on July 19. The video purportedly showed a large number of Uyghurs detained in Xinjiang. The ambassador claimed the coverage was only of a transfer of prisoners in the region. The Chinese Foreign Ministry also refuted a report that claimed the father of a woman from Xinjiang, named Zumrat Dawut's, was detained and died under unknown circumstances. It said that he was never arrested or interrogated, and he died of a heart condition in October 2019. Xinjiang is an autonomous region in China, and there are multiple human-rights concerns raised by mainstream media and different foreign governments. On July 28, France called on a United Nations-led observer mission to evaluate China's treatment of the Muslim minority Uyghur population, accusing Beijing of indefensible practices.
