A woman whose mother and four siblings died in a fire in the Chinese city of Urumqi has blamed the government for their deaths.
China has a strict zero Covid policy leading to many prolonged lockdowns. Protesters said restrictions prevented people from fleeing the burning building on Nov. 24 — although the government denied this.
BBC Newsnight’s Danny Vincent spoke to Serafet, an ethnic Uyghur in exile in Turkey, who said she found out she had lost her family through social media.
She added that there was no official confirmation of their deaths.
