Flutkatastrophe in Pakistan

Pakistani Army soldiers on rubber dinghies evacuate people from flooded areas in Swat, a region of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Province, Pakistan, on 02 August 2010. More than 1,000 people across Pakistan have been killed and hundreds of thousands stranded due to flash floods trigerred by the the ongoing spell of monsoon rains. The worst floods the country has faced in several decades washed away millions of hectares of crops, submerged villages and destroyed roads and bridges in the north-western province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, parts of the Pakistan-administered Kashmir region and the eastern province of Punjab.
