Pakistan flood response criticised

President Zardari returns home from Europe to face mounting anger over response.

    Asif Ali Zardari, the president of Pakistan, returned home on Tuesday after controversial visits to France and the UK.

    Zardari is facing rising anger in Pakistan from victims of what some are describing as the country's biggest catastrophe since its creation 63 years ago.

    While the government response to the devastating floods has been heavily criticised, Pakistan's army and religious groups are earning praise from the public for their efforts.
