Trapped in Tripoli, detained refugees in Libya moved to safety

The U.N. Refugee Agency led its second relocation of 150 detained refugees from Abu Selim detention centre in south Tripoli to UNHCR’s Gathering and Departure Facility in the centre of Libya’s capital, away from hostilities in the city’s outskirts.

More than 18,000 people have been displaced, according to the United Nations, by a two-week offensive by forces from eastern Libya trying to take the capital from the internationally recognised government.

Thousands of African and Syrian migrants and refugees are trapped in Tripoli as a battle for the city draws closer.
