Flow of Refugees Out of Syria Passes Two Million

Africa’s child mining shame

“I thought I was dead,” Adam K. said, describing a mining accident the previous year, when he was 16 years-old. Adam, who started mining at age 12, was digging a horizontal mining shaft, deep in the ground.  The tunnel collapsed in front of him, burying and killing two of his friends. “I was so scared,” he told me, “I just cried and despaired.”

‘Modern-day slavery’ in Qatar: There’s Bad and Good News

The Guardian’s findings that labourers in Qatar are falling victim to what it calls modern-day slavery are a depressing confirmation of the country’s dismal treatment of migrant workers. In November 2010, when Qatar won the bid to host the 2022 World Cup, it was clear that a failure to make basic reforms would result in the sort of brutal exploitation revealed in Pete Pattison’s outstanding investigative report.
