TOKYO: Japanese apparel makers Mizuno and World Co will stop using Xinjiang cotton out of concerns over alleged human rights violations in the region, Nikkei reported on Friday.

Apparel manufacturers have been criticised for using cotton from the western region of Xinjiang, where western countries and Japan have accused China of mass detention of Muslim Uyghurs.

China denies all accusations of abuse.
