Floods affect millions in Pakistan

People are fleeing affected areas, taking livestock - their only moveable assets - with them

    Monsoon rains are continuing in Pakistan, in what has been described as the worst disaster to hit the southern province of Sindh.

    The floods have already inundated 4 million acres of land and affected 4 million people, scores of whom have fled the worst-affected areas.

    Thousands of livestock have already been washed away by the flooding, but people are determined to take their cattle - their only movable assets - with them, as they try to hold onto anything that can be saved.
