Migrant sit-in

African migrants gather for a sit-in protest, at the UN refugee agency offices in Tripoli, to demand that the international community moves them out of Libya. Protesters at the UNHCR office said the demonstration began a few days ago and other migrants joined on Friday after fleeing the detention centre, where a gunfire incident occurred, killing at least six people. The migrants said they moved to that location because they felt unsafe and had nowhere else to go. They sleep on the ground, cook their meals on the spot, and care for the injured by themselves. There are men, women and some children among them.
