Libya floods wipe out quarter of city, death toll passes 2,000.

Reuters reports on the more than 2,000 people who were killed and at least 10,000 missing in Libyan floods caused by a huge Mediterranean storm that burst dams. They swept away buildings and wiped out as much as a quarter of the eastern coastal city of Derna. Officials expected the death toll to rise further after Storm Daniel barrelled across the Mediterranean into a country divided and crumbling after more than a decade of conflict.
