UNICEF releases a report on slavery in Africa and between Africa and the Middle East and Europe.

The BBC's Imogen Foulkes in Geneva says the report found that 89% of the countries had trafficking to and from neighbouring countries, but 34% also had a human trade to Europe. Poverty, traditional migration and conflict are blamed for the traffic. The trade in people is frequently regional. Of the countries surveyed, 26% said trafficking was taking place to the Middle East.

And this is interesting... UNICEF has positive things to say about its relationship with "faith based organizations."

An abhorrent madness, to be sure. Thanks for bringing this our attention
