The death toll from floods in Libya’s coastal city of Derna reaches 11,300

CAIRO (Reuters) – At least 11,300 people have died and another 10,100 are missing in the coastal city of Derna, a week after Storm Daniel hit northeastern Libya, the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs reported on Saturday.

An estimated 170 people died and more than 40,000 people were displaced as a result of the floods in other parts of the country, the UN report said, citing the latest data from the International Organization for Migration. As search and rescue operations continue to search for survivors, the numbers are expected to rise.
