GENEVA (Reuters) - A European and African deal to stem the flow of migrants coming through Libya to Europe fails to tackle the abuses they face, the top U.N. human rights official wrote on Friday.

The Aug. 28 deal struck in Paris by France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Chad, Niger and Libya failed to provide "a detailed blueprint to tackle the hidden human calamity that continues to take place within Libya, and along its coast," U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad al Hussein said.
