UN: Pakistani children at risk of dying from disease
Tens of thousands of children in Pakistan are at risk of dying from waterborne diseases like cholera says the United Nations, as floods continue to devastate the country.
The widespread floods in Pakistan began more than a month ago, and have left an estimated eight million people in need of emergency relief.
Health officials say there is a growing risk of disease and malnutrition among the millions of displaced people, most of whom have little or no access to clean water, sanitation and food supplies.
