Children at risk as disease spreads in Pakistan

Tens of thousands of children in Pakistan are at risk of dying from malnutrition as floods continue to devastate the country, according to the UN.

The widespread floods in Pakistan began more than a month ago, and have leaft 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.
