Pakistan's government has confirmed that more than a million people are suffering after a very dry winter in the country's southern province of Sindh.

Almost 140 children have died of starvation in the Thar desert region in the past few months.

Strong criticism has been levelled at the authorities for not doing more to prevent the deaths.
