Sklavenmarkt in Libyen gefilmt

Aus dem Netz

Footage released by CNN shows men being sold at an auction in Libya.

The footage shows an auctioneer standing in front of a group of young men, shouting: “Big strong boys for farm work. 400? 700? 800?”

CNN traveled to Libya to verify the authenticity of the footage. There, they secretly filmed an auction outside the Libyan capital of Tripoli.

Referred to as “merchandise,” the men being sold into slavery were migrants and refugees. Twelve Nigerian men were sold at the auction.

“Does anybody need a digger? This is a digger, a big strong man, he’ll dig,” one salesman said.

“Within minutes it is all over and the men, utterly resigned to their fate, are being handed over to their new ‘masters,’” CNN reported.
