UNHCR complained of the overcrowding of its facility for the gathering and transferring of refugees, in Libya, explaining that this will hamper the transferring process of migrants.

The UNHCR explained in a statement that the overcrowding of its facility will affect its ability to transfer refugees at risk in Libya, to other safer countries.

The facility, which was built by the UNHCR in December last year, is overloaded and hosts more than 1,000 refugees, while it is only equipped to accommodate 700 people, according to the UNHCR.
