AfroPoP: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange

Sound of Torture

Season 7 Episode 3 | 57m 20s

Since Europe closed its borders in 2006, thousands of Eritrean refugees have fled their military dictator-ruled country towards Israel. The only way out is across the Sinai desert in Egypt. There, many are kidnapped by Bedouin smugglers and taken to camps where they are tortured and raped as they are forced to call their relatives begging for ransom for their release.
