WASHINGTON – Condemnation has continued to trail the bombing of a migrant center in Libya on Wednesday. The deadly air strike, described as one of the worst hate crimes in recent times, killed at least 44 Africans and injured more than 100 others.

In a statement on Wednesday, the United States said it “strongly condemns the abhorrent attack on a migrant detention facility in Tajoura, Libya, which reportedly killed 44 and injured more than 100 innocent civilians”. 

“We extend our deepest condolences to families of those killed and wish a speedy recovery to those injured. 

“This tragic and needless loss of life, which impacted one of the most vulnerable populations, underscores the urgent need for all Libyan parties to de-escalate fighting in Tripoli and return to the political process, which is the only viable path to lasting peace and stability in Libya”.

Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari, also condemned the bombing in a statement. Many of those killed are believed to be Nigerians trying to escape poverty and seek better lives in Europe.
