Massive floods have been ravaging Pakistan for more than two weeks, the worst in a generation. More than 16-hundred people have died, and 15 million have been affected.

President Asif Ali Zardari made his first visit to the flooded areas on Thursday after wrapping up his trip to Europe.

He visited some victims in flooded areas. Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani also flew to inspect the southwest.

He assured the international community that every single penny would be accounted for. The UN has warned that the disaster is far from over. Survivors already short on food and water have entered the fasting month of Ramadan.
