The UN has called for the dismantling of all detention centers for refugees in Libya, saying the facilities are not fit to house migrants. The appeal comes nearly two weeks after more than 50 people were killed in an air strike on a holding facility in the Libyan capital Tripoli. The victims were mostly Africans attempting to reach Europe on boats after fleeing poverty and conflict. The UN refugee agency has called the facilities in the centers “awful”. Thousands of migrants are being held in dire conditions in government-run detention centers across Libya.
