Help is coming slowly to Derna, an unusual town in Libya’s Green Mountains that has been at the center of (and not only) civil war for the past decade. The main coastal road is badly damaged, even in the hinterland access to the most desolate hamlets is barely possible. Because of this, large groups of foreign rescue teams arrived in Derna only last weekend. In the city, which had around 90,000 inhabitants before the cataclysm, and currently, taking into account the victims, almost 40,000 of them are homeless, there is still no drinking water and electricity. The raging water washed away many unexploded mines.
