Background: In Pakistan, the worst floods in the country's history have caused more devastation on their way south.
Sind Province is feeling the full force of the floods, which have already left a trail of destruction in the Punjab. The Indus River spilled out over about 20 villages in the Sind, despite efforts by thousands of troops and volunteers to repair a breach in the embankments.
Eighteen hundred people are reported to have died because of the floods, and several thousand more are missing. Outbreaks of malaria, cholera and dysentery have been reported in the affected area. The extent of the livestock losses has not been estimated, but it is known that millions of pounds sterling worth of crops have been ruined. Rescue and relief operations are being hampered by a lack of the most elementary equipment, although some helicopters are being used to evacuate villagers form their flooded homes. They're reluctant to go - and many have died clinging to their possessions and their homes.
