Since 2000, CNN reporters have reported on the persecution of Falun Gong in China and the severe torture practitioners are forced to undergo in labor camps. In 2016, one CNN article detailed new findings that the Chinese regime is harvesting organs from hundreds of thousands of Falun Gong practitioners for profit, then cremating their bodies, which some human rights experts have called one of the worst crimes against humanity since the Holocaust. Find that and other selected reports on the persecution from CNN below.
