Watch The Video Footage Of Migrants Sold In Apparent Slave Auction In Libya


Footage of men being auctioned off as slaves in Libya has been met with outrage and the UN Secretary-General has called on the international community to “unite in fighting this scourge”.

In the grainy mobile footage, unidentified men are offered up as a group of “big strong boys for farm work”.

The film was obtained by CNN journalists, who later witnessed another sale of a dozen men in a courtyard outside the country’s capital, Tripoli.

“Does anybody need a digger? This is a digger, a big strong man, he’ll dig,” the auctioneer, who is dressed in camouflage gear, is heard saying. The men were sold for as little as £300, the US broadcaster reported.
