    Floods in Pakistan have wiped out thousands of hectares of crops, ruining the livelihoods of millions.

    Pakistani and UN officials estimate that 80 per cent of the food stock has been destroyed while the World Bank says the cost of crops destroyed amounts to up to $1bn.

    The government is concerned about how it is going to feed its population of more than 170 million over the next few months.
