European governments are complicit in grave human rights violations in Libya through their support for authorities there who often work with people smugglers and torture refugees and migrants, Amnesty International said Tuesday.The European support for Libyan authorities is part of a plan to cut African immigration across the Mediterranean.It said the bloc's funding helped the U.N. agency for migration, the IOM, send more than 15,000 people in Libya to their home countries in Africa.The EU backs Libya's coastguards in its efforts to intercept people heading to Europe but they work closely with people smugglers who torture people for money, Amnesty said.
