UN says Sudanese migrant killed in Tripoli
A Sudanese migrant was beaten, shot and killed in Libya after escaping from a government-run detention center in the capital Tripoli, the U.N. refugee agency said on Wednesday.
The 25-year-old who arrived in Libya two years ago was detained and held in the Mabani detention center in Tripoli, one of more than 5,000 migrants detained in a massive crackdown earlier this month.
The man, from Sudan’s war-wrecked Darfur region, was beaten and shot before masked armed men took him to a hospital. He was then transferred to another hospital where he died late Tuesday.
The UNHCR has called for an investigation into the killing and for holding those responsible to account.
