    Eritrean refugees in Sudan accuse traffickers of abuse and torture.

     

    There are calls for Sudan's government to do more to stop human trafficking.

    The African nation is used as a transit point by thousands of people from neighbouring Eritrea that are trying to reach the West.

    They face a tough journey, often falling victim to smugglers on their way to the Libyan coast.
