France demands emergency United Nations meeting on treatment of migrants in Libya

The UN Security Council will on Tuesday discuss human trafficking during a special debate expected to focus on the treatment of migrants in Libya. "It has just been decided so numbers and means are still under discussion but Rwanda estimates the number to be welcomed around 30,000", she said, adding that this figure "is not confirmed yet but an estimation".

"What happened in Libya is shocking, scandalous, but we must establish the responsibilities", Conde said.

The footage appeared as a live auction in Libya where black men are presented to buyers as potential farmhands and sold off for as little as $400.

The government tweeted a foreign ministry statement last night saying the country was "horrified by the images of the tragedy now unfolding in Libya". "Given Rwanda's political philosophy and our own history, we can not remain silent when human beings are being mistreated and auctioned off like cattle". The minister was referring to her nation's own dark history wherein over 800,000 people (mostly Tutsi) were killed in 1994 in one of the worst genocides in world history.

The AU, EU and the United Nations must work together to find an immediate solution to the migration crisis and the situation in Libya, Chairperson of the African Union Commission Moussa Mahamat said Wednesday. The United Nations stands ready to work closely with the Libyan authorities to provide legal protection for migrants, support them to address these despicable practices and bring the perpetrators to justice.

"We hope that the security Council surrounds of the notice to the public of the global Organization for migration and united nations High commissioner for refugees, to ensure that these two agencies of the united Nations shall make public the real state of the situation in Libya, including the trafficking of migrants", the minister added.

The UN takes note of the recent announcement of an investigation by the Libyan Government of National Accord and strongly urges that it be conducted in a swift and impartial manner.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has also called for united efforts to handle the crisis of illegal immigrants.

"Libya alone cannot solve this problem", he said.
