Pakistan's fertile lands threatened

Heavy flooding obliterates villages and destroys crops in country's south.



    Fears of severe food shortages have increased in Pakistan as floods wipe away farmland and destroy crops in the south of the country.

    The Pakistani army has been using boats and helicopters to evacuate villagers to higher ground, as authorities warn of more rainfall.

    More than two million people have been displaced in the country's southern region alone, a figure that may continue to rise.

    Al Jazeera's Kamal Hyder has more from southern Punjab.
