The U.S. State Department report released Monday, July 30, 2012, highlighted what it said was a lack of religious freedom in China as well as Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran and North Korea. It said there had been "a marked deterioration during 2011 in the government's respect for and protection of religious freedom" in China, and that there was "severe" repression of religious freedom in Tibetan areas and the far western region of Xinjiang, home to a significant number of Muslims.
