Does the Uyghur language use the Arabic or Mongolian scripts?

I looked up "Uyghur script" in Google and I'm seeing the up-down Mongolian script and an Arabic script. I looked it up on Wikipedia and it's full of Arabic script translations. Do the Uyghurs of China use the Arabic or Mongolian scripts?

    What did YOU see on the wikipedia entry? (link below)

    I see a number of scripts, the arabic script as one among others.

    I don't see the Mongolian alphabet being used.

    The classical vertical Mongolian script is solely used by Mongols in the Chinese province of Inner Mongolia; in the independent state of Mongolia, Cyrillic is used.
