More than 200 Uyghurs are being held at an immigration center near Thailand's southern city of Hat Yai's international airport after they were detained in a secret camp in a mountainous rubber plantation in Songkhla province on March 12. They had fled ethnic tension in China’s restive northwestern Xinjiang region and face deportation back home where they could be punished, according to some of their relatives.
