UAE Landmarks Light Up in Solidarity With Libya

Famous landmarks in the UAE lit up in solidarity with Libya, where the floods, caused by Storm Daniel killed at least 5,300 people in Libya's eastern province of Derna.

Dubai's Burj Khalifa and Adnoc's headquarters in Abu Dhabi displayed the Libyan flag as well as messages of support.

The Adnoc building displayed a message, which said "From the UAE, we extend our heartfelt sympathies to the people of Libya... Our thoughts are with Libya."

At least, 600 people who died in floods, were buried in the mass graves.

Upto 10,000 people are still presumed to be missing. 

UAE sent two planes carrying 150 tonnes of aid to Libya, which includes food and medical supplies.

The humanitarian aid is part of the air bridge that the President of the UAE Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed established to support Libya.
