Manchester United’s midfielder Pogpa prays for “slaves in Libya”
The midfield star wrote: “While very happy to be back, my prayers go to those suffering slavery in Libya. May Allah be by your side and may this cruelty come to an end!”
This comes after the CNN had reported last week that there are slave auctions and markets in Libya’s southern region as well as parts in Tripoli.
The Libyan authorities, including the Interior Ministry and the Foreign Ministry, announced following the report that there had started an investigation into the allegations, adding that if the claims were right, the perpetrators of such an inhuman crime will be punishment.
