The black hand — ETIM and terrorism in Xinjiang

    98

    The East Turkistan Islamic Movement, or ETIM, is designated as a terrorist organization by the UN. For decades, the group which has close links with international terrorist organizations perpetrated countless terrorist attacks aiming to separate the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region from China.

    The movement has attempted to recruit people on a massive scale, spreading a radical ideology that continues to cause chaos in many countries around the world.

    In this exclusive CGTN exposé, we show you never-before-seen footages including interviews with perpetrators and recruitment videos used by this black hand.

    This is the second documentary in our reporting on China’s fight against terrorism on its western frontier. You can find the first one ‘Fighting Terrorism in Xinjiang’ here
