Two sides of Africa plunge migrants into deep despair. Thousands from the continent's central belt head to Libya, load themselves on boats bound for Europe, and never reach their destination.
Meanwhile, the Islamic State group abducts Ethiopian migrants and murders them. The militants of the IS do the work of European fascists, who would rather see these forlorn men and women dead than on their shores.
At the other end of Africa, reckless statements by Zulu leaders send equally wretched men and women to riot against migrants.
