THE death toll following Libya's devastating floods has soared to 11,300, with more than 10,000 still missing. A major dam collapse washed a 10ft deep torrent of water through the eastern city of Derna on Sunday - wiping out everything in its path. However, local officials suggest the death toll could be much higher than announced. The dead in eastern Libya included at least 84 Egyptians, whose remains were transferred to their home country on Wednesday. 8 The disaster came after a major dam collapse Credit: Reuters8 More than 3,000 bodies were buried by Thursday morning following the tragedy Credit: AFP
