A 14-year-old girl died on Friday after a wall collapsed and landed on her as heavy rainfall caused floods in Tripoli.

The heavy rain flooded several districts and streets in the capital and closed the highway; bringing the traffic to a standstill. Some roads were also swept away by the floods.

The National Safety Authority has advised drivers to take caution and reduce speed.

Meteorologists say the rainfall is to last until Saturday.
