According to international police organization, Interpol, on Thursday, 500 people, all victims, were rescued after a leap on human trafficking across West Africa.
Eye Witness say the Interpol-led action comes amid a global outcry sparked by footage of Africans being solved as slaves in Libya, often the final transit for migrants wanting to reach Europe.
In a release, Interpol confirmed that some 500 people, including 236 minors, had been rescued in simultaneous operations across Chad, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, and Senegal, and forty suspected traffickers were arrested.
