Political discord over Pakistan aid

Government accused of "favouritism" in relief efforts, six weeks after heavy rains caused devastating floods.

    It has been over six weeks since heavy rains caused devastating floods across Pakistan and the UN has launched an unprecedented disaster appeal for $2bn.

    Pakistan has already received more than $1bn in emergency donations but some opposition politicians accuse the government of playing politics with international aid money.

    Al Jazeera's Kamal Hyder asked the politicians representing both the opposition and the government if the flood victims are receiving aid regardless of their political affinity.
