The U.S. Department of Commerce has blacklisted 10 Chinese companies for allegedly torturing, massacring, raping and violating human rights by detaining a large minority of Uyghur Muslims in China's Xinjiang province. Reuters quoted a ministry source as saying in a report on Friday.

Earlier in June, United States Department of Commerce blacklisted five Chinese companies for manufacturing solar panels, software and computer technology as part of protests against China over the same issue.

Officials at the U.S. Department of Commerce have not released the names of the 10 companies that have recently been blacklisted or provided information on their products. However, they said that in the near future, four more Chinese companies with business in the United States will be added to the list.

Meanwhile, the Chinese Foreign Ministry has strongly criticized the recent move by the United States.

"The Chinese government is committed to protecting the legal rights and interests of Chinese companies," ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said in a statement on Friday.

At the same time, China has strongly objected to the allegations made by the United States against China, saying that it is completely untrue.
