Pakistan floods: UN chief denounces 'climate carnage'

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Saturday toured some of the areas worst damaged by flooding in Pakistan, reported DW, quoting news agencies, AP, AFP and Reuters.

Guterres, on his second day of a two-day visit to the country, visited Sukkur district in southern Sindh province and Osta Mohammad in southwestern Baluchistan province.

The UN chief also visited camps for displaced flood victims in Larkana district in Sindh as well.

Pakistan floods affect millions

With nearly 1,400 deaths and some 33 million affected, floods in Pakistan have massively disrupted life in the country.

Vast swaths of the country remain under water, with severe damage to property and farmlands adding to the challenge of coping with the devastation.

The UN has launched an appeal for $160 million (€158 million) in aid to help Pakistan, while the UAE and US are among countries that have provided the most aid so far.
