Abandoned refugees living on Libya’s streets in appalling conditions – BBC News

Libya is the main hub for migrants and refugees hoping to cross from Africa to Europe via the Mediterranean.

Thousands of migrants were detained in early October 2021 in a crackdown by the Libyan authorities.

But detention centres are dangerously overcrowded with migrants living in terrible conditions and during a recent mass breakout guards shot dead six people.

Many of those who did escape are now living on the streets, just outside a United Nations compound.
