African migrants suffer in Libya post-Gaddafi

African migrants suffer in Libya: Thousands of migrants displaced by fighting on Libya’s northwestern coast are in urgent need of medical help, the head of a detention centre in the town of Gharyan said on Thursday, describing their situation as “tragic”, reports Middle East Eye.

“About 5,800 migrants have arrived at the centre since fighting broke out last month in the coastal city of Sabratha, previously a launch pad for crossings to Italy. About 2,000 people have already been sent on from Gharyan to other centres in the capital, Tripoli.

The NATO Libya war in 2011 sent the country spiraling into chaos and civil war, now characterized by militia rule, sectarianism and proxy war.

“The situation is very tragic…disastrous. There’s a lack of support,” said Abdulhameed Muftah, who runs al-Hamra dentition centre in Gharyan, about 80km south of Tripoli.

The clashes in Sabratha resulted in the withdrawal of the Anas al-Dabbashi brigade, an armed group that said it had begun blocking migrant departures from Sabratha under intense pressure from Italy. Sabratha was previously the foremost smuggling hub for migrants attempting to cross the Mediterranean.

Led by Scandinavian bestselling author, Hanne Nabintu Herland, The Herland Report news and opinion website provides independent analysis from leading Western intellectuals and ground breaking YouTube interviews, cutting through the mainstream media rhetoric. It is a great place to watch interviews and read the articles of leading intellectuals, thought leaders, authors and activists from across the political spectrum. The Herland Report believes in freedom of speech and its editorial policy resides above the traditional Left vs Right paradigm which we believe has lost its relevance and ability to describe the current driving forces in Western politics.
