Food-displaced Pakistanis say shelters are cramped

STORY: In overcrowded conditions, many are spilling out into the corridors and the courtyard of the school building, as there were only seven rooms and four bathrooms available for the displaced families.

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

The inundation, blamed on climate change, has swamped about a third of the South Asian nation and is still spreading.

Pakistan is struggling to respond to the floods given their unprecedented magnitude. The government has said 33 million people - 15% of its population - have been affected. The United Nations has appealed for $160 million in aid to help tackle the disaster.
