Pakistan faces 'massive economic challenge', says IMF

Pakistan faces a "massive economic challenge" as it deals with the floods, according to the International Monetary Fund.

The organisation has said it will review the country's budget and financial prospects, after its government said the cost of rebuilding could reach $15bn (£10bn).

Meanwhile tens of thousands of people in the south of Pakistan are fleeing the flood waters of the swollen Indus River as it approaches the Arabian Sea.
