Monsoon rains devastate Pakistan region

As the worst monsoon rain in a generation hits north west Pakistan, the death toll has risen to over 1100.

The US government has been helping by dropping halal food parcels by air.

Officials say 19,000 people in the worst-hit areas have been rescued by 30,000 troops.

But there are now concerns that if forecast heavy rain arrives it will push the flood south to Sindh province.
