  • Egyptian summit calls for end to violence in Libya

Amnesty global has denounced the latest violent attack that targeted refugees and migrants at a detention center on the outskirts of Tripoli, calling for the protection of civilians and trial of those responsible for this terrible aggression and assault.

The refugees - mainly Eritrean, Sudanese and Nigerian - were taken to a detention centre on Wednesday in Zawiya, a town west of the Libyan capital, where they were at "reduced risk", the UNHCR said in a statement.

The UN says some 3,600 refugees and migrants are held in facilities near the front lines of fighting between the "Libyan National Army" under General Khalifa Haftar and other heavily-armed militias.(ANSAmed).

More than 825 refugees have been evacuated in the past two weeks from different detention centers near the conflict zones. He said the armed men entered the detention centre, confiscated people's phones and then began shooting.

UNICEF's representation in Libya revealed in the report that around 227 people died and more than 1,100 were injured in the recent fighting in Tripoli, in addition to the more than 32,000 individuals who were displaced from their homes.

Haftar's offensive is the latest round of fighting in a years-long struggle for control of Libya following the NATO-backed rebellion that toppled and killed longtime dictator Moamer Kadhafi.

"These refugees and migrants should not even be detained in the first place", said Magdalena Mughrabi, deputy Middle East and North Africa director at Amnesty.

"We are more than 600 people here [in Qasr Ben Ghashir]".

The comments from Sarraj to the Liberation and Le Monde newspapers in France are his harshest criticism yet of Paris which has always been suspected of offering backing to Haftar, a former army field marshal based in eastern Libya. He told Russian news agencies that Moscow is asking the LNA to cease fire and "restore a dialogue and political efforts" promoted by the United Nations. Khairi al-Tamimi, a top official in Hifter's administration, was visiting Moscow on Wednesday.

The strongman's bold move on Tripoli three weeks ago appeared to have taken the global community by surprise, but raised questions about possible French complicity - an idea firmly dismissed by Paris. In an interview with the Russian state-owned RIA Novosti news agency, he said the LNA supports the idea of a national election but that such a vote can only be held after the capital is "liberated".
