Interpol has canceled the red notice arrest warrant requested by China for Uyghur activist Yidiresi Aishan, who was detained in Morocco last month. The red notice flagging Aishan as a member of “terrorist” organizations, and issued at China’s request, led Moroccan authorities to detain the 33-year-old computer engineer and father of three after he arrived in Casablanca on July 19. Aishan, who is also known as Idris Hasan, has been based in Turkey since 2012, where he worked on a Uighur diaspora online newspaper. (THE TIMES)
