Citizenship Law Protests Rock India: Daily Brief

Plus: post-protest Iran continues violence against demonstrators; children in Senegal endure abuse in Quranic Schools; refugee children are in a dire need of education; a mass grave in Iraq unveils a massacre; China censors a football match after top player criticizes Uighur detention; mental health issues for refugees significantly worsens; US government-funded trolls attack Americans who criticize the Iran sanctions; and a comic about a Uighur woman's persecution goes viral.

In Iran, a vicious post-protest crackdown continues. With at least 304 people killed and thousands arrested, the government is using violence to silence anyone who wants to speak out about the government's repression. 

Thousands of Senegalese children are being subjected to widespread abuse in Quranic Schools, a new HRW report today reveals. The situation calls for urgent government action for children who've been "openly neglected, exploited, and abused." 

Mohammed should be in class, but instead he's one of millions of refugee children being denied an education. This week’s Global Refugee Forum in Geneva is an opportunity to tackle this problem.

In Iraq, the discovery of a mass grave containing the remains of 643 civilians gives a chilling potential explanation of the 2016 disappearance of the al-Muhamdah tribe.

After a soccer star from Arsenal football club criticized China's treatment of Uighurs, China's main broadcaster responded by refusing to broadcast Arsenal's match at the weekend

What if trolls on the internet are actually government officials? In the United States a government-funded troll campaign has been targeting Americans who are critical of the country's hardline policies on Iran.

And finally, a Japanese comic about a Uighur woman's persecution is going viral, illustrating the hardships endured by hundreds of thousands every day.
