From approximately 650 until around the 1960s, the Arab slave trade continued in one form or another. Historical accounts and references to slave-owning nobility in Arabia, Yemen and elsewhere are frequent into the early 1920s.[37] In 1953, slaves companied sheikhs from Qatarattending the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II and they did so again on another visit five years later.[9]

As recently as the 1950s, Saudi Arabia's slave population was estimated at 450,000 " approximately 20% of the population.[42] During the Second Sudanese Civil War people were taken into slavery; estimates of abductions range from 14,000 to 200,000.[43] Slavery in Mauritania was legally abolished by laws passed in 1905, 1961, and 1981.[44] It was finally criminalized in August 2007.[45] It is estimated that up to 600,000 Mauritanians, or 20% of Mauritania's population, are currently in conditions which some consider to be "slavery", namely, many of them used as bonded labour due to poverty.[46]
