UN aid reaches small portion of flood-hit Pakistanis


United Nations flood aid has reached hundreds of thousands of Pakistanis but the organisation says that there are six million who still need to be given
food, shelter and water.

The national weather office was predicting more thunderstorms with heavy rain in the upper northwest, upper Punjab, parts of the north and
Kashmir. The forecast said that at least for the next two days no new wave of flooding was expected, and main river levels wer said to be falling gradually.

Some displaced people said any possession that were left after the flooding was stolen and that there are thieves everywhere.

A refugee interviewed in a camp said: “Our whole house is flooded, and our fields, and nobody comes to help us.”

“The government has abandoned us,” says a woman in the camp. “They keep saying help will come tomorrow.”

The government and opposition leaders have promised to work together in the crisis, saying that Islam forbids politics at a time like this.
