40 migrants killed in Libyan detention centre.

40 migrants have lost their lives after an attack at a detention Centre in the outskirts of Tripoli in Libya.


40 dead and about 80 people injured after an airstrike hit a detention Centre according to the UN backed government.


Anti-government forces led by military warlord Khalifa Haftar have accused the government of bombarding it and most of the dead are believed to be Africans attempting to cross over to Europe by sea.


Libya has been torn by violence since the ousting and eventual killing of long time ruler Muammar Gaddafi IN 2001.


However, the UN- backed Government of National accord (GNA) led by prime minister Fayez al-Sarraj have accused the Libyan National Army (LNA) of carrying out the attack.
