Floods bring misery to Pakistan

Rains forecasted to continue as government appeals for more aid for 13 million displaced.

    Pakistan's prime minister is appealing for more international help to deal with the nation's worst flooding in living memory.

    The government has mobilised, attempting to repair crucial infrastructure, and private foundations are also lending a hand.

    But for the displaced, the situation is dire. Thirteen million people are already affected, and there's more rain on the way.
