The Presidential Council (PC) has reiterated that the Libyan Attorney General's Office and the concerned authorities have started probing the CNN report about slave auctions in Libya.

"Slavery and human trafficking are inhuman and a crime against humanity." The PC said in a statement on Thursday.

It added that if the media reports were proven true, all the individuals involved in the crime will be punished.
