Pakistan flood response not enough, aid bodies say

Aid agencies in Pakistan have warned that many more people will die as floods inundate southern areas unless more international help comes.

The United Nations is to launch a fresh appeal on Wednesday to help 14 million people affected by the deluge.

It says that so far about 1,600 people have been killed.

The UK charity, Oxfam, has described the floods as a "mega disaster" which require a "mega response". It says that so far that has not been forthcoming.
