In the tiny West African country of Benin, voodoo is trapping thousands in poverty and causing some families to sell their children into slavery. Benin is the home of voodoo. The ancient animist belief was taken by slaves from this tiny West African state to Haiti and New Orleans. Benin is the only country in the world that officially recognises voodoo as a state religion, affording it the same national status as Christianity or Islam. But, as Unreported World reveals, voodoo is trapping thousands in poverty and causing some families to sell their children in to slavery. © 2008 Channel 4
