- 103 Children nearly flown out of Chad
- Was this the first trip?
- Did France know they were coming?
- Did families pay money for the Children?
IN what looks like a dramatic repeat of the capture and transfer of the over 20 million Africans to Europe in the era of the slave trade, 103 children, were stopped from boarding a plane destined for France by the government of Chad about a week ago.
At the time of going to press, ten Europeans were being held charged with kidnapping 21 girls and 81 boys aged between one and 10,with an intent of transporting them abroad.
The humanitarian agency Zoe's ark which had organised the trip however deny any wrong doing. The organisation on it's website claims it planned to remove 10,000 children orphans from the region because of the destabilisation effect of the Darfur War and said it was operating under international law.
