Canada Prepares To Welcome Hundreds Of Refugees
According to CNN, Canada has announced that it will take in 750 refugees from Libya.
Canada had already resettled more than 150 people, with another 600 refugees expected to arrive in the next two years.
Two years ago, CNN revealed video footage showing migrants being sold into slavery in Libya, some for as little as $400 each.
The video caused a national outcry with the UN condemning the sale of migrants as "heinous abuses of human rights." Canada also plans to resettle 100 refugees from Niger, rescued from Libyan migrant detention centers, including victims of human smuggling.
