The death toll from devastating flooding in Libya’s eastern coastal city of Derna has risen to at least 11,300, according to a UN report released Saturday, even as continuing search efforts are expected to find more victims.
A further 170 people have been killed outside of Derna due to the flooding, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said.
In Derna alone, at least 10,100 people remain missing.
These figures are expected to rise as search-and-rescue crews work tirelessly to find survivors,” it added.
More than 40,000 people have been displaced across northeastern Libya since the Storm Daniel, the UN said.
