Canada to welcome 750 ex-slaves from Libya


Canada will welcome some 750 ex-slaves from Libya as refugees, Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen said.

The number of migrants traveling through Libya to reach Europe has increased tenfold since the fall of Moamer Kadhafi in 2011, according to the United Nations.

And their fate was highlighted – dramatically in 2017 – by multiple shipwrecks in the Mediterranean and the broadcast of a CNN report showing a Libyan slave market.
