Mariama Oumarou, 20, recounts how she escaped a life of slavery during an interview in Niger's capital Niamey in this July 3, 2005 file photo. Describing scenes that sound like horror stories from past centuries, the testimonies of women once trapped in lives of servitude suggest slavery is thriving in the West African country of Niger despite the government's denials. London-based human rights group Anti-Slavery International says 43,000 people live as slaves in Niger. Picture taken July 3, 2005. TO MATCH FEATURE NIGER-SLAVERY REUTERS/Finbarr O'Reilly/File
