Amnesty said it found new evidence of “harrowing violations, including sexual violence, against men, women and children” living in Libyan detention camps after being returned from the Mediterranean. Amnesty International on Thursday condemned “the ongoing complicity of European states” for cooperating with authorities responsible for “horrific violations” committed against migrants returned to Libya after attempting to cross the Mediterranean Sea. In a report that focused on migrants returned to detention camps in Libya in 2020 and 2021, the international rights organization said it found new evidence of “harrowing violations, including sexual violence, against men, women and children.” The report was compiled after interviews with 53 refugees and migrants between the ages of 14 and 50. Originally from several countries, including Nigeria, Somalia and Syria, the interviewees were mostly still in Libya.
