WASHINGTON DC - The US is reportedly set to block key exports from China's Xinjiang region - including cotton - over allegations that they are produced using forced labour by Uyghur Muslims.

Up to 1.8 million Uyghurs, and other Turkic groups, have reportedly been rounded up in the Xinjiang region - China's cotton growing hub - in what has been described as the largest mass detention of people since World War II.

The US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is said to be preparing a Withhold Release Order (WRO) which would allow it to detain shipments based on suspicions of forced labour involvement.
