Ethiopian migrants living in Saudi prisons, DRC volcano victims still displaced, and more
A weekly news show produced with photos, videos and personal accounts from FRANCE 24 Observers around the world – all checked by our staff here in Paris.
This week on The Observers, we start with the story of Ethiopian migrants who have been kept in Saudi Arabian prisons for months in poor conditions, with dirty surroundings and little to eat or drink. We spoke to Arafat Jibril Bakrii, a human rights activist who has been helping migrants to share photos and videos of their living conditions.
Then, our Observer Jack Sinzahera went to see the makeshift camps in the Democratic Republic of Congo where thousands of disaster victims are living four months after the Nyiragongo eruption. Sinzahera says the situation is bleak and the response from the authorities is not very encouraging.
Finally, a look at a new social media sensation in Japan. "Gomi Hiroi Samurai" (Litter Collecting Samurai) is a group of environmentally conscious individuals who pick up rubbish in Tokyo’s streets while performing as Samurai. We spoke to two of the group's members.
