Hundreds freed from horror of captivity in Sinai
« on: November 17, 2011, 05:54:49 PM »
A large group of African refugees have been allowed to cross the border from the Sinai region of Egypt into Israel. The people had been victims of human trafficking, subject to slave labor and even organ harvesting.

From the article:

While in captivity the refugees are enslaved, many of the women raped and some even killed. The CNN crew even found evidence that some victims had organs extracted, a practice known as organ harvesting, and were later found dead in the desert.

Shortly after the documentary aired, more than 600 African refugees were released in Sinai, says Hamdi al Azzazy, an activist for the New Generation Foundation for Human Rights who has worked for years in the region, fighting to improve the plight of the African refugees.
