Trafficked Migrants Tell of Rape and Torture

Harrowing details are now emerging about the rape and brutality suffered by the hundreds of Eritrean and Somali migrants who boarded the ill-fated fishing boat that sank off the coast Lampedusa, Italy, more than four weeks ago.

According to reports, human trafficking gangs operating in the region move thousands of vulnerable Africans across the Sahara to Libya every year.
