UN chief urges Libya to shut migrant detention centers
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres (pictured) renewed his call for Libya's authorities to close migrant detention centers across the country, describing a raft of human rights abuses inside the facilities.
In a report submitted to the Security Council on Thursday, Guterres said more than 2,780 migrants were detained across the war-ravaged country as of July 31. Twenty-two percent of those held are children.
