According to the British newspaper “The Guardian,” the organization, which works in relief and medical services, said that its medical teams had seen more than once guards beating detained refugees, including patients seeking treatment by DWB agents.

It noted that the doctors treated 19 patients with fractures, bruises, injuries, and severe trauma as a result of the beatings, for which Doctors Without Borders was suspended from the Abu Salim detention center south of Tripoli.
