North Africa: Europe, now is your time to act: Refugees forced out of Libya urgently need resettlement
In the wake of the conflict in Libya, thousands of refugees who were in the country at the time have been forced to flee again. Now, they have nowhere to go. The international community holds the solution: some states can offer to resettle them elsewhere. Yet so far, European countries have done little to help. Amnesty International supports UNHCR's Global Resettlement Solidarity Initiative for Libya and is calling on EU member states, to share responsibility for resettling refugees stranded in Egypt and Tunisia.
