Pakistanis continue to evacuate towns and villages as the worst floods in the country's history spreads to more areas.
The floods first struck in the north and are now roaring down the Indus River basin towards the Arabian sea. They are swallowing villages and precious crops along a 1-thousand kilometer long trail from northern Pakistan to the south, killing more than 16-hundred people.
Rescue efforts have been hampered not only by poor weather, but also by the reluctance of villagers to leave their homes.
Persuading stranded people to agree to leave their villages is one of the biggest challenges for authorities, who have limited resources and must act quickly in case fresh rains cause more devastation. The Pakistan army dispatched four truckloads of relief material to Karachi, the capital of Sindh province.
