    Edit: I changed the link to the Outlaw Ocean Project version of the article, since it's the exact same (including pictures, videos, and interactive elements) as the New Yorker one I originally submitted, but isn't paywalled.

    Here is a less detailed NBC article (no paywall), about the same subject and also written by Ian Urbina:
    Frontex, Europe’s border agency under fire for aiding Libya's brutal migrant detentions

    The E.U. pays for almost every aspect of Libya's often lethal migrant detention system, an investigation found, including the boats that fire on migrant rafts.
