The United Nations Security Council sanctioned six accused leaders of human trafficking networks operating inside Libya on Friday -- marking the first time traffickers have been put on an international sanctions list.

According to the U.N., the six sanctioned individuals are Ermias Ghermay, Fitiwi Abdelrazak, Ahmad Oumar Al-Dabbashi, Mus'ab Abu-Qarin, Mohammed Kachlaf and Abd Al Rahman Al-Milad.

The sanctions were a result of a Dutch proposal backed by the United States, France, Germany and Britain. The implementation of the sanctions came after Russia lifted a technical hold it set on the request for action against the individuals.

The unprecedented sanctions follow a CNN report at the end of 2017 showed footage of a migrant slave auction in Libya.
