Correction: Libya story

CAIRO (AP) — In a story February 7, 2020, about the rising number of migrants being intercepted off the coast of Libya, The Associated Press erroneously reported that the United Nations ostensibly runs compounds where militias have abused and extorted migrants for ransoms. The detention facilities referred to are run by Libya’s west-based government.
