Eritrea mining rights

Gold mines in Eritrea (like this one pictured in Sudan) have been accused of using forced labor in a new report by Human Rights Watch. The Eritrean government forces all able-bodied men and most women into a national service system and sometimes "loans" workers to foreign companies, like Canadian mining firm Nevsun, which operates the first mine in the country.
