Pakistan floods rescue hampered

Damaged infrastructure complicates relief efforts after deadly flooding.

    About 30,000 Pakistani soldiers are involved in an operation to rescue thousands of flood victims in the country's northwest.

    More than 1,000 people have already died in flash floods and landslides.

    Al Jazeera's Sohail Rahman reports from the Swat Valley, where collapsed buildings and damaged roads are hampering rescue efforts.
