‘The city looks dead’: residents on flood-wreaked Derna

Derna (Libya) (AFP) – A week after a tsunami-sized flash flood devastated the Libyan coastal city of Derna, search and rescue for bodies and any survivors continue. The massive flood burst two upstream river dams in Derna. Questions are being asked about whether the disaster could not have been prevented, as cracks in the dams have been reported since 1998.
