Challenges faced one year on from Pakistan floods

Friday marks the anniversary of the floods in Pakistan which caused at least 1,600 deaths.

Rivers burst their banks and entire villages were washed away during the heaviest monsoon rains, causing millions to flee their homes in the north west of the country.

One year on, the relief effort is continuing as hundreds of thousands of people still lack proper homes.

The BBC's Aleem Maqbool spoke to Mengesha Kebede, the UN Humanitarian Co-ordinator for the country, about the challenges they still face.
