ABC News’ Bob Woodruff visits Turkey to speak with Uighurs who say they’re trying to escape the horrors that are happening inside China’s Xinjiang region.
In January, 7-year-old Bayan Auelkhan landed at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport with her parents. She found herself over 7,000 miles away from her home in Kazakhstan, and her family does not know if or when they’ll return.

But she doesn’t mind the travel or even living in a strange, new place, now that Bayan is back with her mother after being separated for much of her life.

Gulzira Auelkhan [Bayan’s mother] described her alleged experience in the camp to ABC News’ Bob Woodruff. Her interview and more will air Thursday at 7 p.m. ET on ABC News Live Prime with Linsey Davis. 

Video of first part of interview which aired Wednesday, May 19, included in ABC’s article:
