              FILE - In this image from video, Zumret Dawut, a Uighur from China's western Xinjiang region, who was forcibly sterilized for having a third child after being released from a Xinjiang detention camp, holds a phone with a picture of her kids at her home in Woodbridge, Va., on Monday, June 15, 2020. For Dawut and other camp survivors who spoke out, the U.N.'s report on the mass detentions and other rights abuses against Uyghurs and other mostly Muslim ethnic groups in Xinjiang was the culmination of years of advocacy, and a much-welcome acknowledgement of the abuses they say they faced at the hands of the Chinese state.
