Video: Uighur football unity

Their roots are in China, but they live in Washington DC.

Following recent unrest in their homeland, a group of 20 young Uighurs are using football to bring their community together. They call themselves "Uighur United".

Al Jazeera caught up with the team captain and co-founder, Arafat Dilshat.

Arafat is a student at a local college who came to the US from China when he was 10-years old.

This is his story in his own words.
