China calls for probe into children’s death


GENEVA: China has called for an independen­t investigat­ion into the discovery last month of the remains of more than 200 indigenous children at a Canadian boarding school.

The remains of 215 children, some as young as 3 years old, were found in British Colombia at the site of a former residentia­l school for indigenous children.

“We call for a thorough and impartial investigat­ion into all cases where crimes were committed against the indigenous people, especially children, so as to bring those responsibl­e to justice and offer full remedy to victims,” Jiang Duan, an official at China’s mission to the UN in Geneva, said.
