A minister in the government of eastern Libya said on Tuesday that more than a thousand bodies had been recovered in the city of Derna, which was ravaged by torrents, and that it is not possible to count the total number of deaths at the present time, but the number is very large.
Hisham Shekiwat, Minister of Civil Aviation and member of the Emergency Committee, told Reuters by phone, “I returned from there (Derna)... It is very disastrous... Bodies are thrown everywhere in the sea, in valleys, under buildings.”
He continued, "I do not have a total number of deaths, but it is very large... The number of bodies recovered in Derna exceeded a thousand... I am not exaggerating when I say that 25% of the city has disappeared. Many buildings have collapsed."
