BEIJING - China's attempt to fight back against forced labour allegations surrounding the country's cotton industry continues to bear fruit with the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) apparently removing a key statement from its website.

The BCI announced last October that it was withdrawing from the Xinjiang region - which supplies a fifth of the world's cotton - over concerns about the use of forced labour by incarcerated Uyghur Muslims.

However, that article is no longer visible on the website with the BCI reportedly claiming that this was because its website had been the target of repeated "denial-of-service" attacks in recent days.
