As I write this, more than 29 million people are living in slavery. This statistic comes from the first index on modern-day slavery in 162 countries, released by the Australia-based Walk Free Foundation on Thursday. According to the Foundation, slavery today includes forced labor and human trafficking. While India has the greatest number of slaves, the country with the biggest percentage of the population living in slavery is Mauritania. Infographics after the jump.
