Hundreds of African nationals and activists flocked to the Libyan Embassy in Paris on Saturday, outraged at the government’s failure to tackle human smuggling, after a CCNreport unveiled a network of migrant slave auctions in Libya.

About a thousand people turned up to the protest following calls by several prominent anti-slavery groups and a number of celebrities of African origin, including former Chelsea FC star Didier Drogba and former Miss France Sonia Rolland.

Carrying signs reading “No to slavery in Libya,” the demonstrators gathered in front of the Libyan Embassy on Saturday afternoon, before marching towards the Champs-Elysees, where they were stopped by riot police cordons.

Clashes broke out as police moved to disperse the protest. Some activists began hurling rocks at police, who responded with tear gas.

The Libyan government launched a probe into slave auctions operating in the country, including areas controlled by the UN-backed Government of National Accord, after CNN showed footage of migrants being sold at a location outside Tripoli.

CNN claims in the report, that men were priced at as little as $400, and that auctions are being carried out at many sites across Libya each month.
