Ivory Coast's President Alassane Ouattara called on the International Criminal Court Saturday to indict criminals who are selling black African migrants in Libyan slave markets.The report was embarrassing to Libya, but also to Europe, which has increasingly been relying on Libyan security forces and allied militias to prevent migrants crossing the Mediterranean to Europe."This economy has been growing at an average of 9 percent per annum over the past six years and that will create jobs, and Ivorians will stay in Cote D'Ivoire," he said.But he implored Europe to be more "open minded" to migrants, pointing out that Ivory Coast was home to 6 million economic migrants from its neighbors -- a quarter of the population.
