Over 750 Ex-Slaves From Libya To Be Welcomed Into Canada

Canada has announced plans to welcome into Canada, at least 750 ex-slaves from Libya as refugees, Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen said so on Wednesday.

Hussen, himself a former refugee from Somalia added that, ‘Canada is also taking action to resettle 100 refugees from Niger, rescued from Libyan migrant detention centers, including victims of human smuggling”.

According to the United Nations, the number of migrants traveling through Libya to reach Europe has increased tenfold since the fall of Moamer Kadhafi in 2011 and their fate was highlighted dramatically in 2017 – by multiple shipwrecks in the Mediterranean and the broadcast of a CNN report shong a Libyan slave market.
