Chinese authorities install facial recognition camera in mosque

Each month, our journalists go meet an Observer to take a closer look at events they have witnessed.


We take a look back at some of our best stories from 2019.
Our Observer was shocked to see a facial recognition camera installed in a mosque in Xinjiang, China. The region is home to a large Muslim Uighur population who are facing increasing cruelty and violence from Chinese authorities.
