Death Toll from Floods in Libya’s Coastal City of Derna Rises to over 11,300

At least 11,300 people died and some 10,100 are still missing in the coastal city of Derna one week after Storm Daniel hit northeastern Libya, Reuters quoted the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs as having reported on Saturday.

 

An estimated 170 people have been killed as a result of the flooding elsewhere in the country, and more than 40,000 people have been displaced, the UN report said, citing the latest data from the International Organization for Migration.

 

Figures are expected to rise as search-and-rescue efforts continue.
