Libya: video shows Sudanese migrants being tortured
January 24, 2018
A video showing Sudanese migrants being tortured by Libyans was published this weekend on social networks. These violent images support the allegations of torture that have been made for months by migrants in Libya.
The images are difficult to watch as they are of incredible violence. After the outrage aroused in mid-November by a report of the US channel CNN showing enslaved migrants in Libya, a new video released Sunday, January 21 highlights the tortures suffered by migrants stranded on the Libyan territory.

Aware Migrants decided not to show the video.
