Migrants are being sold as a commodity in Libya by smugglers, the UN warned on Tuesday.
The findings by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) follow testimonies from victims who have described being traded in garages and squares in a town in the war-torn country’s south-west.
IOM Chief of Mission in Libya, Othman Belbeisi, tells Daniel Johnson that the abuse is likely being perpetrated elsewhere in the country by other human traffickers.
