At least 40 killed in strike on Libya migrant detention center

Baku, July 3, AZERTAC

An air strike hit a detention center for mainly African migrants in a suburb of the Libyan capital of Tripoli late on Tuesday, killing at least 40 people and wounding 80, according to Reuters.

It was the highest publicly reported toll from an air strike or shelling since eastern forces loyal to Khalifa Haftar launched an offensive three months ago with ground troops and aircraft to take the capital, base of Libya’s internationally recognized government.
