Egypt's lawless Sinai Peninsula is a living hell for thousands of refugees from sub-Saharan Africa who are being kidnapped and tortured by a network of rapacious human traffickers.
"These people are tortured while their families are listening on the other end," said Stockholm-based Meron Estefanos, co-founder of the International Commission on Eritrean Refugees.
"As the refugee flow to Israel decreased, the Rashaida started to lose money, so they began to kidnap refugees from camps inside Sudan," Ms. Estefanos said.
