The Tribune (SLO) - - Insight -

Gun­men at­tacked a de­ten­tion cen­ter hold­ing hun­dreds of mi­grants in Libya’s cap­i­tal, where fight­ing has raged between ri­val mili­tias since a mil­i­tary com­man­der launched an of­fen­sive ear­lier this month, a rights group said Wed­nes­day.

Amnesty In­ter­na­tional said armed men raided the Qasr Ben Ghashir fa­cil­ity, 12.5 miles south of Tripoli’s city cen­ter, on Tues­day. It said video footage of the af­ter­math shows three peo­ple with ap­par­ent gun­shot wounds and oth­ers lying wounded with bloody ban­dages.

It was not im­me­di­ately clear who was be­hind the at­tack.
