The World Bank is to loan $900m (£574m) to Pakistan to help it recover from its worst ever flooding.

The devastating floods have affected up to 20 million people and left some 2,000 dead.

Health officials have warned that disease could spread quickly among the millions of displaced people and that 3.5m children are at risk.
