EU chief says Europe should end “scandalous” migrants detention centers in Libya
European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker says “Europe has got a collective responsibility” to help improve migrant detention conditions in Libya.
Juncker told EU lawmakers that the European Union must work closely with the UN’s refugee agency to ensure that this “scandalous situation” does not continue.
The EU has been criticized over Libya policies aimed at stopping people from fleeing Africa for Italy by sea but which see many migrants trapped in dangerous and squalid centers in the conflict-torn country.
