Climate change made the heavy rainfall that led to deadly floods in Libya up to 50 times more likely, scientists said.

Communications went down, some journalists were pushed out, and a United Nations aid team was blocked from the flood-hit city of Derna as the authorities sought to contain public anger over the failure to prevent Libya’s worst-ever natural disaster.

The International Organisation of Migration said Derna was home to more than 8,000 migrants, mostly from Chad, Egypt, and Sudan, when the floods hit. An estimated 400 nigrants died when, on the night of September 10, the heavy rains of Storm Daniel burst through two dams meant to keep Derna safe. Foreign Media
