Following the publication of PHR-Israel's report "Hostages, Torture, and Rape in the Sinai Desert: A PHR-Israel update about recently arriving asylum seeker" (13.12.10) the international media started to cover the issue extensively. In this BBC report, the reporter Rupert Wingfield-Hayes met some of the refugees being held in Egypt's Sinai desert and the people traffickers profiting from the trade. The report also examines the work of PHR-Israel's Open Clinic for Migrants and Refugees.
