The Guardian yesterday had an astonishing account from Mende Nazer about her life as a member of the Nuba tribe in Sudan, and being captured into slavery. Finally she managed to escape when she was working in Britain.
The full account doesn’t seem to be up on the main Guardian site, but it’s an extract from a book co-authored by Damien Lewis (surely not that Damien Lewis). Since what I read is only an extract, I’m sure that there’s much more to this story and it’s definitely worth reading.
