The Wider Image: Without papers, Uighurs fear for their future in Turkey
Gulgine Mahmut places food on the table as her sons Mohammed, 10, and Hamza, 9, eat lunch at their home in Istanbul, Turkey, February 28, 2019. Mahmut has not heard from her eldest son Pakzat since he went back to Xinjiang in 2016 to visit his grandparents. A friend of Pakzat's told her husband, Qurbanjan Nourmuhammed, that Pakzat was detained upon arrival at the airport in Urumchi. "When my son was arrested, he was only a 16-year-old kid. His younger siblings ask us constantly when they'll be united with their older brother," Mahmut said. REUTERS/Murad Sezer SEARCH "SEZER NOURMUHAMMED" FOR THIS STORY.
