    (ANSAmed) - ROME, NOVEMBER 14 - An exclusive CNN report revealed migrants in Libya being sold at auction as slaves. In the video, two migrants are sold by human traffickers who are heard calling out prices. One young man up for auction in the video, who CNN said is Nigerian, is described by the auctioneer as part of a group of "big, strong boys for farm work".

    After CNN received the initial video, it travelled to Libya to verify the story and captured a dozen people on video being auctioned off in a matter of minutes.
