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

"The resolution of this type of drama can only take place if there is a political solution" in Libya, concluded jean-Yves Le Drian.

He said migration must be addressed "in a comprehensive and humane manner" and should include a crackdown on smugglers and traffickers.

"Sanctions are the solution if the Libyan authorities did not probe the issue".

The Chairperson of the African Union Commission, Professor Alpha Conde, strongly condemned the despicable acts which are at odds with the ideals of the Founding Fathers of the Organization and relevant African and worldwide instruments, including the African Charter on Human and Peoples' Rights.

This comes following the release of shocking images showing the sale of young men.The demand followed the release of CNN footage of a live auction in Libya where black youths were presented to north African buyers as potential farmhands and sold off for as little as $400.

Trading in human beings as witnessed recently in Libya is a "crime against humanity", the chairman of the African Union (AU) Commission said Tuesday after a recent revelation of a slave trade in Libya shocked the global community.

Six years after the overthrow and death of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, Libya is still a failed state and a transit point where thousands of African migrants use as a gateway to reach Europe despite the risk of imprisonment, torture and even death.

Libyan authorities launched a formal investigation into the human slave auctions, which CNN revealed this month in exclusive reporting.

Reuters reported that protesters gathered outside the Libyan embassies in Paris and in African capitals, including Mali and Conakry, over the weekend and on Monday, according to local news reports.
