Call for African force to stop trafficking

BERLIN. — A French government spokesman says France doesn’t plan a military intervention in Libya but supports the creation of an African force to help fight against human traffickers. Benjamin Grivaux said yesterday on CNews television that “an intra-African force must be able to intervene”, after recent footage of a migrant slave auction in Libya drew global horror and condemnation.

He said that France and other European countries can help with intelligence and logistics.

French President Emmanuel Macron has called for an “initiative” to go after human traffickers with “concrete, military and police actions on the ground to trace back these networks”. — AFP.
