Libya's avoidable tragedy: What consequences after Derna dam disaster?
Khalifa Haftar's own sons are accused of capturing the humanitarian response for their political advantage. We review that claim. Rescue efforts are always challenging in a weak or failed state – remember the mismanagement after Haiti's devastating 2010 earthquake. How challenging will they be in post-Gaddafi Libya?
Derna is on the Mediterranean and in a week when Europe is scrambling over a fresh influx of migrants, the tragedy is another reminder that Libya's neighbours to the north ignore its broken politics at their own expense. How to help build a credible, functioning state that's about more than the scramble for oil riches and power?
