Refugees Seeking To Reach Europe Sold In Libya By Traffickers

Agencies (Qasioun) - Migrants and refugees are being sold as slaves by human traffickers in Libya for as little as a few hundred pounds, a shocking report has found.


Thousands of migrants still arrive in Libya, many from sub-Saharan Africa and Africa's Horn in the hopes to cross the Mediterranean.


However, as Italy and the EU have been financing and training Libya's coastguard to stem the flow of people crossing the Mediterranean, many see their journey to Europe end in Libya.


Libya, a country in chaos since the overthrow of longtime dictator Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, more or less ceases to take any responsibility for the thousands of people stranded on the banks of the Med.
