At least 40 people are reported dead and dozens more wounded after an air raid struck a migrant detention center in Tripoli early Wednesday. The country’s U.N.-backed government blamed the attack on forces loyal to renegade Gen. Khalifa Haftar, whose Libyan National Army has sought to capture the capital for months. Earlier this week, the LNA pledged to begin airstrikes on Tripoli, though an official denied the group was behind Wednesday’s attack.
What’s next? The tragedy could further turn the international tide against Haftar, who’s supported by Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.
