Title China: 1. What is the status of Han Chinese living in Urumqi? Is there information in relation to whether a Han Chinese family would receive protection from the authorities if harassed by Uighurs? 2. Is it possible for a Han Chinese person with a Hukou registered in XUAR to return there at the present time? 3. Is there information regarding discrimination against Han Chinese from XUAR in other parts of China? 4. If a husband's Hukou is registered in Fujian province, are his Han Chinese wife from XUAR and her baby (born in Australia) entitled to live there? 5. Would a couple now be considered to be legally married in China, if their overseas marriage occurred when they were both 20 (below the marriageable age in China) and their child was born when they were 21? What ramifications might this have on the wife's ability to register a Hukou in the husband's province (Fujian)?
