By Dionne Searcey and Jaime Yaya Barry –  DAKAR, Senegal — When Kalilu Drammeh arrived in Libya he was in many ways similar to thousands of other migrants from across Africa, all of them desperate to cross the sea to get to Europe and, they hoped, a better life.

The Tripoli log jam

In April 2017, French photographer, Guillaume Binet of Agence Myop gained rare access to three Libyen detention centers where sub-saharan refugees are currently being held in their desperate attempt to flee war and famine at home. He followed some of those that managed to escape, as they attempted to reach international waters, and the MSF team aboard the Aquarius, some twenty nautical miles off the coast of Tripoli, in international waters.

Between Towering Ruins and Detention Centers: A Look Inside Libya

Dr. Tankred Stoebe spent the month of January 2017 traveling through Misrata and Tripoli on assignment with MSF. The fighting continues in Libya, a country fragmented by a multitude of power centers.

SAR Zone, off the Libyan coast – 2017

On July 25th we awoke to rough seas in the central Mediterranean, some 15 miles north of the Libyan city of Sabratha, in international waters. The Spanish rescue ship Open Arms, belonging to the NGO of the same name, pitched and rolled on the open water, making us believe that that day there would be no rescues to be made – it seemed impossible that a single dinghy could have launched from the Libyan coast in those winds. Fotografie di Santi Palacios.

Inside the Libyan Detention Centers Where Humanity Ceases to Exist

The good news is that Africa has people who want to work. In fact, according to the International Monetary Fund, by 2035 the number of people reaching working age in Africa will exceed the number in the rest of the world combined. But Africa is not where the jobs are. And so every year, hundreds of thousands of migrants set off across the Sahara toward the promised land of Europe. The journey takes them to Libya, where aspiration verging on desperation meets laissez-faire economics at its most brutal.
