Migrants in the Libyan capital, Tripoli, demand immediate deportation to a safe location due to living conditions in detention centres and ill-treatment by Libyan authorities.

Dozens of migrants protested Saturday outside the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) headquarters in the Libyan capital, Tripoli where protesters held banners.

Sudanese migrant Omar Idris claimed that they have been beaten, detained and imprisoned by authorities. UNHCR officials said that tensions with migrants, demanding urgent aid and their deportation from Libya, resulted in the injury of two staff members and impeded the access of other asylum seekers to the centre.
