The raging floods in Libya have killed more than 6,000 people, with another 10,000 reported missing, swept out to the Mediterranean Sea or buried under rubble, authorities said Wednesday.

Meanwhile, the International Organization for Migration said the flooding that hit eastern Libya has displaced more than 30,000 people.

The U.N. agency said at least 30,000 of the people forced to move lived in the devastated city of Derna, with thousands more from other areas, including Benghazi. Two dams above Derna burst, adding to the flooding from the torrential rains of Storm Daniel.
