In Libya, at least six refugees were shot dead Friday by guards at an overcrowded prison camp. In recent weeks, armed forces in western Libya have detained over 5,100 refugees — including hundreds of children — as part of a sweeping crackdown. On Sunday, hundreds of refugees gathered outside a United Nations facility in Tripoli trying to escape from Libya. Fatima is a refugee from Sudan.

Fatima: “I want to leave Libya. I want to evacuate us from Libya. This is what I want. We are tired. We have no food and no shelter. They attacked us with bullets. They took us to jail with no food or drink. We left prison and came here. Even the children have nothing to eat.”
