Fresh Pakistan evacuations ordered

Hundreds of thousands of people stranded as fresh floods hit Sindh province.



    Nearly a month after Pakistan's most catastrophic deluges swept away towns and villages across the country, hundreds of thousands of people have been stranded by fresh floods in some regions.

    In Sindh province - one of the worst affected areas - authorities have issued new evacuation orders for up to 700,000 people from numerous inundated towns.

    But authorities are trying to divert the water flow in the region to the Arabian Sea to avoid further destruction. 

    Al Jazeera's Zeina Khodr reports from Hyderabad City in Sindh, where floodwaters are expected to take months to recede.
