news making rounds on social media and users sharing photos appearing to show migrants returning home from Libya after being released from slavery.

Football star Samuel Eto'o has denied claims that he personally donated money or purchased plane tickets for Cameroonian migrants so they could return home.

In a post on his Facebook page, he said "this rumour is completely baseless".
