Amnesty report alleges complicity by EU governments in torture
An Amnesty International report alleges that EU governments are knowingly complicit in the torture and abuse of refugees and asylum seekers in Libya. The cause of the problem seems to be the payment of funds to authorities who are working with local militias and people smugglers.
The situation in Libya is chaotic as an Amnesty report describes. There is widespread lawlessness and the country is deeply divided. We may return to this story as it unfolds. Amnesty say they have enough evidence to take governments to court.
