Pakistan's worst floods

Thousands of people are affected by the worst floods in living memory, as the death toll rose to 800.

    Hundreds of people have died in northwestern Pakistan after floods triggered by monsoon rains swept through the region.

    More than a million people have been affected and thousands forced to flee their homes as bloated rivers washed away villages and triggered devastating landslides.

    Rescue operations have been launched to save the stranded, but submerged roads and destroyed infrastructure are proving to be major obstacles.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
