Child trafficking in Benin: Poverty pushes parents to sell children to traffickers

© Capture d'écran France 24

On tonight's show: calls for a recount of Gabon's ballots grow louder, as EU observers report clear anomalies in the vote. Also, families in Benin send away thousands of young children a year to human traffickers, in the hopes their remittances will bring them out of poverty. And UNESCO publishes its report on Global Education, showing how the international community is failing to achieve major global education targets, with the poorest nations worst affected.
