End The Tragedy

Days after 50 migrants and refugees were killed when an airstrike hit a detention centre in Libya – with no way to escape – nearly 100 people have been sent to the exact same camp.

The warring militias have ripped Libya apart but by far the most vulnerable are the migrants. If they stay in Libya, they are at risk of being kidnapped and tortured or bombed in detention centres. If they board boats bound for Europe they will be effectively turned back.

The UN’s human rights agency begged the world to prevent tragedies such as 3rd July by urgently evacuating and resettling at least 5,600 people being held in centres in Libya, usually in horrific conditions.
