More than 100 Ghanaians, who were detained in Libya, have returned home after government secured a chartered flight for their repatriation.

The returnees went to Libya with the hope of getting to Europe, but ended up in detention centres as illegal migrants.

Their return follows world-wide outrage over footages of Sub-Saharan Africans being auctioned as slaves in the country.

African and European leaders have been discussing the issue at the on-going AU-EU summit in Cote d' Ivoire, and drawn up a "Marshall Plan for Africa" to try and deal with the problem.
