Libyan National Army (LNA) forces lead by marshal Khalifa Haftar Wednesday denied any responsibility for an air strike on a detention centre that killed more than 40 migrants in a Tripoli suburb, a spokesman said.

"The (pro-Haftar) forces deny their responsibility in the attack on the migrant centre of Tajoura," spokesman Ahmad al-Mesmari said.

Mesmari blamed the attack which has sparked international outrage on Haftar's rivals in the Tripoli-based internationally recognised government.
