Hundreds in Istanbul Protest Against China's Treatment of Uighur Minority

Hundreds of people have marched in Istanbul to protest against China's treatment of its minority Muslim Uighur community.
The group, which has cultural ties to Turkey, has complained of cultural and religious suppression under Chinese rule.
The demonstration was peaceful but the Dogan news agency said a group of nationalists tried to attack a group of Korean tourists which they mistook for Chinese nationals. Relations between China and Turkey have been strained over Turkish reports that Uighurs were banned from worshipping and fasting during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
