More than 40,000 people have been intercepted in the Mediterranean and taken to detention camps and torture houses under a European migration policy that is responsible for crimes against humanity, according to a legal document asking the International Criminal Court to take the case.

Citing public EU documents, statements from French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other top EU officials, the document alleges officials are knowingly responsible for deaths of migrants at land and sea and their widespread rape and torture at the hands of a Libyan coast guard funded and trained at European taxpayers' expense.
