Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on aid target

Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi says he has been assured that the UN's target of $460m (£295m) in aid will be "easily met".

The emergency meeting of the UN General Assembly saw donors pledge more money for flood-stricken Pakistan.

An estimated 20 million people have been affected and experts say shelter, food and clean water are urgently needed to avert a humanitarian catastrophe.
