Sweden: Thousands decry Libyan slavery in Stockholm

Thousands of people gathered in Stockholm’s Sergels Torg square on Saturday, to demonstrate against slavery in Libya. Protesters demanded the immediate end to slavery, brandishing signs reading «Stop the slavery, now, now, now” and «Human rights for all,” as they sang chants. The protest was prompted by footage released last week, which showed sub-Saharan Africans being sold at slave auctions... Еще for as little as $400 (€335). The images brought to light the issue of smugglers targeting migrants en route to Europe. After widespread outrage, the Libyan Government of National Accord opened an investigation into possible human rights violations.
