The UN migration agency says African migrants who were rejected by Italy last week said they have been held by smugglers for up to two years in Libya and many has been beaten, tortured and raped.

Spokesman for the International Organization for Migration Joel Millman told a UN briefing in Geneva on Tuesday, the 190 migrants, mainly Eritreans and Somalis, were rescued in the Mediterranean on August 15.



Millman said, the UN agency staff had gathered testimony from the migrants and that all were malnourished and exhausted. He said they had been held against their will in Libya for up to two years.

27 unaccompanied minors and 13 people needing urgent hospital treatment had earlier been allowed ashore in Italy but the remaining 150 waited 10 days while Italy’s anti-immigrant government refused to let them disembark.Ireland, Albania and the Vatican later agreed to accept them.
