TRIPOLI, Sept. 28 (Xinhua) -- The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) on Thursday provided water treatment material to the flood-hit eastern Libya.
"The first shipment of 700 kg of water treatment material was dispatched to Libya's General Company of Water and Wastewater," UNICEF said in a statement.
On Sept. 10, Mediterranean storm Daniel triggered Libya's worst floods in decades, killing thousands and severely damaging the region's infrastructure.
According to the UN Support Mission in Libya, the rushing flood waters during the storm also destroyed water networks and sewage pipes, contaminating the water in the stricken areas. ■
