Attack kills dozens of migrants in Libya

At least 40 people have been killed after an air strike hit a detention centre for migrants in the Libyan capital.

The air strike targeting the facility in Tripoli’s Tajoura neighbourhood also wounded 80 migrants.

Social media shared photos of migrants being taken in ambulances to hospitals.

Most of the dead are believed to be Africans, attempting to reach Europe on clandestine sea crossings from Libya.

Thousands of migrants are stopped and held in government-run detention centres in Tripoli.

The country has been torn by violence and division since Colonel Gaddafi was deposed and killed in 2011.

The Tripoli-based government blamed the self-styled Libyan National Army for the air strike and called for the UN to investigate.
