img-icon-newsNAIROBI, March 22 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – One in four internally displaced persons (IDP) surveyed in Kenya has been a victim or witness of human trafficking, the majority lured to the Middle East but then forced to do menial work or sexually exploited, an anti-trafficking charity said on Tuesday.

People who were displaced during Kenya’s 2007/8 post-election violence were most at risk, the charity’s researchers found, particularly those who live close to a major highway or local trading centre.
