2019 Attack on Libyan Migrant Centre May Be A War Crime - UN

Warring parties in Libya, as well as foreign governments supporting them, are being urged to investigate deadly airstrikes last July which killed at least 53 migrants and refugees at a detention centre in the northwest of the country. The UN Support Mission in Libya and the UN human rights office in Geneva published a joint report calling for accountability for the attack targeting the Daman building complex, which houses the detention centre.
