Call for ac­tion over slav­ery

The Press and Journal (Moray) - - WORLD NEWS -

In­ter­na­tional rights groups have urged Mau­ri­ta­nia to re­lease anti-slav­ery ac­tivists, as the US has an­nounced it will end trade ben­e­fits to the coun­try over the con­tin­u­a­tion of slav­ery.

Mau­ri­ta­nia was the last coun­try in the world to abol­ish slav­ery in 1981.
