Chinese Province’s Residents Forced to Give Passports to Police

“Chinese authorities have been confiscating passports of residents of northwest Xinjiang province, claiming the measure serves to combat terrorism. Their confiscated passports will be held by police. ‘Anyone who needs the passport must apply to the police station,’ a police official told the Global Times, a state-funded newspaper, on Thursday. But he assured residents that people without criminal backgrounds would not be affected and would be able to easily get their passports back should they need to travel.”
