The Nation: The EU’s shame is locked away in Libya

A group of men peer out of a warehouse at the Zintan detention center in Libya, where 700 people were arbitrarily detained in appalling conditions. Thousands of refugees and migrants are trapped in detention centers in Libya, nominally under the authority of the Tripoli-based Ministry of the Interior, and conflict raging between armed groups has put them in even worse danger. MSF provides medical care, food, and safe water in several detention centers, and has spoken out publicly to advocate for the urgent evacuation of the detainees.
