Libya flood: Protesters torch mayor's home in Derna

The mayor's home in the Libyan city of Derna has been burnt to the ground, as hundreds of protesters demanded answers for last week's catastrophic flood.
They gathered Monday night at the city's landmark Sahaba Mosque, chanting for top officials in Libya's eastern government to be sacked.
Derna's whole city council has been dismissed.
Internet and telephone access have also been shut down and journalists ordered to leave in a media crackdown.
More than 10,000 people are officially missing after two old and dilapidated dams burst, flooding the city.
