Authorities struggle to help Pakistan's flood affected


Authorities in Pakistan are still struggling to reach those worst affected by floods, weeks after devastating monsoon rains in the south.

Aid workers, who are also affected by flooding, have had difficulty getting help to the thousands stranded on higher ground, officials told the BBC

Officials say 8 million people have now been affected by the crisis. Last week they put the figure at about 6 million.

This year's floods in Sindh are thought to be worse than last year's deluge.
