Uzbek Antislavery Activist Held In Mental Institution


Activist Elena Urlaeva has spent years fighting against forced labor and child labor in Uzbekistan's cotton industry. On March 1, she was arrested and sent to a psychiatric facility. Urlaeva believes she was detained to keep her from meeting with international labor activists. (RFE/RL, Thomson Reuters Foundation, Anti-Slavery International)
