Migrant detention centres in Libya unable to cope amid fighting

African migrants continue to live in fear after being expelled from some shelters only to be rounded up in others.

    Ten days of street battles by rival armed groups for control of Tripoli forced many from their homes and forced some shelters to order the migrants living there to leave.

    Now hundreds of them have been rounded up again in different shelters, but shelter administrators say they won’t be able to take care of them for long.
