COPS are sending people to “concentration camps” if they’re found with Facebook on their phones during random stop and searches in China, it is claimed.

Western social media is banned in China’s Xinjiang region where police are accused of seizing residents’ phones and installing spyware.

Offenders are said to be sent to “re-education” camps to clamp down on social media use.

Mandatory spyware is downloaded onto citizen’s phones to restrict what citizens can access.

And police check mobiles for evidence of foreign social media apps like Twitter or WhatsApp.

Xinjiang is home to 11 million Uighurs – one of China’s fifty-five ethnic minorities who have their own language and mainly practice Islam.

The Chinese government is accused of routinely targeting citizens of the region with “counter-terror” measures and brutal policing.

Kasim, who claims to be a Xinjiang native, shared what he says are secretly taken pictures inside the secretive region, which the Chinese government restricts access to by outsiders.

He says he used special software to bypass the government’s censors and post the images on Twitter.

And he said living in China is “like Nazi Germany” and likened the Chinese Communist Party to ISIS.
