It has been established that China has been carrying out acts of ethnic discrimination towards the native Uighur Turks in East Turkestan (China's Xinjiang province) by placing a specially designed electronic chips in their e-passports.

When the e-passports of the Uyghur Turks are scanned through the sensors at control points, a loud alarm goes off.

After the alarm goes off, security is alerted that the individual is an Uighur. The Uighur is then pulled over into a side room where he or she is searched once again.

Chinese officials said that although the different code in Uighur and Tibetan e-passports were accepted as "unofficial" measures, the command had come from the central administration.
