Some 50 migrants wounded by clash inside detention centre in Libya-UN

TRIPOLI� At least 50 migrants were reportedly injured after they staged a protest that was suppressed inside a detention centre in the capital Tripoli, the United Nations said.

The protest had been driven by frustration and anxiety as the migrants had been held for months in extremely dire conditions, the U.N. refugee agency UNHCR said.

Around 50 people were reportedly injured when the authorities sought to suppress the protest. Two individuals were badly injured and transferred to Abu Salim hospital, a UNHCR statement said, without giving more details.
