An airstrike on Wednesday that hit a detention center for migrants near the Libyan capital of Tripoli killed at least 44 people and wounded more than 130, according to the UN mission to the country. It wasn’t immediately clear who was responsible for the strike, but the Tripoli-based government blamed Gen. Khalifa Hifter’s so-called Libyan National Army and called for the UN to investigate. Hifter receives support from the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, and Russia.
