After CNN released a video showing some sub-Saharan migrants sold at a Libyan slave market, the African Union has expressed much dismay. 

AU chairman, President Alpha Conde has demanded prosecutions over the trade which he says is “from another era”.

Migrants trying to reach Europe have often  been caught by smugglers and forced to work for little or no pay.

According to the CNN video, youths from Niger and other sub-Saharan countries are sold for about $400 (£300) at undisclosed locations in Libya. 

This has however caused Libyan authorities to open an investigation into the issue. It is espected that their investigation would curb down the practice at a national level.
