Documents seen by the BBC appear to provide a detailed insight into how China handled hundreds of Muslims held in a network of internment camps.
The information includes personal details of the Uighur community who were placed in detention for reasons such as wearing a veil applying for a passport or accidentally visiting foreign internet sites.
Critics say the documents are evidence of a campaign by the Chinese authorities against the Uighurs whose home is the far-western Xin-jiang region. But China has always denied any form of religious discrimination.
