About 800 migrants in a government-run center in western Libya are being detained in worsening conditions without sufficient food or water, Doctors without Borders (MSF) said.Many of the migrants have been trapped for more than five months in the center of Zuwara, about 100 km west of Tripoli, where some arrived malnourished after being held by smuggling networks, MSF said in a statement late on Thursday.The centers only hold a fraction of the hundreds of thousands of migrants in Libya.The U.N. refugee agency airlifted 88 migrants from Zuwara to another detention center in Tripoli on May 1 in order to identify the most vulnerable cases for evacuation.
