The Address | Benghazi – Libya

GENEVA – Although the number of migrants and asylum seekers who transited Libya en route to Europe dropped dramatically compared to 2017, the number of those who died trying to reach Europe via the so-called Central Mediterranean Route soared, Human Rights Watch said today in its World Report 2019.

Those who ended up in detention in Libya faced ill-treatment and inhumane conditions at the hands of guards in official detention centers and in unofficial places of detention controlled by militias or traffickers and smugglers, according to the report.
