Pakistan's homeless flood victitms ask for more aid

STORY: "People from the government don’t allow us to go to them. They don’t give us rations. When we demand rations, they say, 'Why don’t you work?' What can we do now that our houses are swept away by the floods?" one displaced resident told Reuters, while standing outside a camp of makeshift tents built on a patch of dry land.

Record monsoon rains and melting glaciers in northern mountains have triggered floods that have killed at least 1,208 people, including 416 children, according to the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA).

Pakistan's meteorological office predicted more rains and flash flooding for the month of September.

Punjab province and the southern Sindh province are expected to receive above normal rainfall, it said, adding that isolated heavy downpours can trigger flash flooding.
