Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Pakistan floods: third of country underwater amid plea for aid” – below is their description.

Pakistan’s climate minister says a third of the country is now under water, after floods which have left more than a thousand people dead.

Thirty million people have been affected by the floods, and at least six million of those are without shelter.

The southern provinces of Sindh and Balochistan are the worst affected, as well as mountainous regions in the north.

Officials say there is an urgent need for tents and food supplies – but relief efforts are being frustrated by flood-damaged roads and bridges.
