United Nations chief Antonio Guterres has called for the closure of all detention centers holding refugees and migrants in Libya, condemning what he described as human rights violations committed there.

In a report submitted to the UN Security Council, Guterres said nothing could justify the horrendous condition under which refugees and migrants are detained in Libya.

“I renew my appeal to the Libyan authorities … to fulfill their obligations under international law and to close all detention centers, in close coordination with United Nations entities,” he said.

According to the secretary-general’s report, more than 2,780 people were being detained as of July 31 in centers across Libya.

Twenty-two percent of the detainees were children.
