  • Footage shows African migrants being sold as slaves at auction for as little as £300 each

    Golocal247.com news

    The Libyan government is to investigate allegations that African migrants are being sold as slaves at auctions. Tens of thousands of migrants, many of them from West Africa but also Bangladesh, Somalia, Sudan and Eritrea, are being held in camps and warehouses on the Libyan coast, hoping to reach Europe. When the warehouses become overcrowded, or if migrants are unable to pay traffickers for the boat journey towards Italy – where many are rescued by NGO-operated vessels – they are sold. The existence of modern-day slave markets has been known for months, with testimony from the International Organisation for Migration and other humanitarian agencies, but last week CNN obtained video footage of one such auction.  In scenes reminiscent of the 19th century, when the slave trade was rife, auctioneers advertised a group of West African migrants as “big strong boys for farm work.” The auctioneers referred to the migrants in Arabic as “merchandise”. The CNN footage showed buyers bidding for the migrants, who were sold off for as little as $400 each. One West African man told the television network: “Sure, I was sold”.  Others recounted how they were beaten by their “owners” as they put to work. Ahmed Metig, the deputy prime minister of the UN-backed Government of National Accord in Tripoli, said the allegations would be investigated. He said he would establish a "commission to investigate these reports in order to apprehend and bring those responsible to justice.” Migrants sit in a detention centre run by the interior ministry of Libya's eastern-based government, in Benghazi Credit: Reuters Alpha Conde, the president of Guinea and chairman of the African Union, where many migrants come from, called for an inquiry and prosecutions relating to what he termed a "despicable trade... from another era". The Senegalese government called the apparent slave market a "blight on the conscience of humanity". The IOM reported the existence of slave markets in April. “The reports of ‘slave markets’ for migrants can be added to a long list of outrages [in Libya],” said Mohammed Abdiker, IOM’s head of operation and emergencies.  “The situation is dire. The more IOM engages inside Libya, the more we learn that it is a vale of tears for all too many migrants.” Migrants who are rescued at sea and brought to Italy have told how they are beaten, tortured and in some cases raped by traffickers in Libya.  Many young women end up as prostitutes on the streets of Italy, with Nigerian girls as young as 13 forced to sell themselves for as little as 10 euros (£8.90) a time, terrified into submission by gang rape and voodoo curses. It is estimated that 80 per cent of Nigerian teenage girls and young women who make it to Italy are forced into the sex trade.

  • Power struggle shakes breakaway republic in eastern Ukraine as armed men seize Luhansk

    Golocal247.com news

    Armed men seized the capital of a Russia-backed separatist republic in eastern Ukraine amid a power struggle between two top officials.  The takeover of Luhansk on Tuesday followed a decision by Igor Plotnitsky, the head of the breakaway Luhansk People's Republic, to fire interior minister Igor Kornet the night before. Luhansk state television showed masked men with assault rifles and heavy machine guns blocking the entrances of administrative buildings and streets in the centre of Luhansk on Tuesday, reportedly on the orders of the interior ministry. One of them wore the blue uniform the interior ministry's Berkut unit, a police force specialising in putting down riots. The armed men had ignored Plotnitsky's command to leave, Russian independent newspaper Novaya Gazeta reported. Igor Plotnitsky, head of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People's Republic, salutes during Victory Day military parade. Credit: Alexander Ermochenko/Reuters In a video on Tuesday Kornet said he wanted to “dispel rumours” of his dismissal and said his forces had captured Ukrainian saboteurs who were attempting terrorist attacks in the republic. He also claimed that Plotnitsky's chief of staff, the head of the security service and the general director of the state television company had been implicated in a coup attempt last year and arrested on Plotnitsky's orders. But Plotnitsky later said in a statement on his website that Kornet had indeed been fired and the actions of interior ministry forces “crossed all acceptable lines”. He said the “attempts of certain people to remain in power” were futile and “will be completely neutralised in the near future”. The outcome of the power struggle remained unclear on Tuesday. Novaya Gazeta reported that the republic's state security ministry, military headquarters and people's militia were “not participating in the conflict between Plotnitsky and Kornet”.  Interior minister Igor Kornet visits a penal colony near Luhansk in 2016. Credit: Alexander Ermochenko/Reuters Separatists seized control of much of the Luhansk and Donetsk regions in April 2014 following the establishment of a pro-Western government in Kiev and Russia's annexation of Crimea. The ensuing conflict between the rebels, who have received military assistance from neighbouring Russia, and government forces has claimed more than 10,000 lives.  A ceasefire agreed in Minsk in 2015 has been regularly violated, and a Ukrainian soldier died in a mortar strike on Monday. Several top separatist commanders have been assassinated since the start of the conflict.
