‘Libya Is Full of Cruelty’

A new report details horrifying accounts of sexual violence, killings, torture and religious persecution along the Libyan smuggling routes.

Amnesty International detailed in a new report horrifying accounts of sexual violence, killings, torture and religious persecution along the smuggling routes to and through Libya. The organization spoke to at least 90 refugees and migrants at reception centers in Puglia and Sicily, who had made the journey across the Mediterranean from Libya to southern Italy in the past few months, and who were abused by people smugglers, traffickers, organized criminal gangs and armed groups.
