Pakistan army leads relief drive

Troops praised for "heroic aid effort" while government is criticised for little help.

    Many Pakistani flood victims remain angry at the lack of help they have received from the government.

    The army, however, has been praised for its relief and rescue efforts, though it has been overwhelmed by the sheer scale of the disaster.

    Al Jazeera's Jonah Hull travels with the military in flood-ravaged central Punjab and reports on the huge task ahead.
