Technology giants Google, Apple and Facebook have been accused of facilitating an online slavery market. 

An undercover investigation by BBC News Arabic found smartphone apps in Kuwait where potential buyers can scroll through the details of thousands of women available for domestic service.

The women can be ‘bought’ for as little as £3,000.

UN special rapporteur on modern slavery Urmila Bhoola told the BBC: ‘What they are doing is promoting an online slave market.
