Rwanda Awaits Migrants From Libya After Signing Evacuation Deal

Rwanda has fullfilled it's commitment made in 2017, to host African refugees trapped in Libya, as European nations stepped up migrant controls. President Paul Kagame made the commitment following "damning revelations" that tens of thousands of people from across Africa were not only stranded in Libya after their failed bid to reach Europe but many of them were being "subjected to slavery".
