World leaders have a "collective responsibility" to stop human trafficking and modern slavery, the UN Chief told members of the Security Council on Tuesday.

Secretary-General António Guterres spoke during an open debate on the trafficking of persons in conflict situations, given added impetus following universal outrage at a television news report this week documenting young migrants being sold at a slave market in Libya.
