Army deployed amidst deadly Pakistan floods


Pakistan has been hit by severe flooding with the government forced to deploy troops to aid rescue efforts.

The army used boats to evacuate hundreds of people stranded by the sudden rise in water levels.

Around 2.3 million people have been affected, after days of heavy monsoon rains exacted a toll on the landscape.

The floods and resulting landslides have reportedly claimed around 500 lives in Pakistan and India. A further 300,000 people have been evacuated from the worst hit areas, with some relief camps being set up to care for them.
