Benin Boat

Lisa talks with NPR's Ivan Watson, who is in the West African country of Benin, about the boat full of children that still has not returned to the country. The rusted, aging ship left the capital city of Cotonou on March 30th, and was believed to be taking the children to work as forced laborers. It tried to dock at two different ports in Africa and was turned away. Now there is fear that it may never return to Benin.
