TRIPOLI, Libya, April 3 (UNHCR) – The UN refugee agency earlier this week donated 350 tents to provide shelter for hundreds of people forced to flee their homes in south-east Libya because of damaging floods.

Heavy rainstorms last week caused flooding, damaged homes and reportedly left at least five people dead and dozens injured in the deep south towns of Immralanib, Majdol, Tarpo, Zaolya and Hemerah.
