Severe flooding has killed more than 1,300 people in Pakistan since mid-June, officials said, and by the end of August more than a third of the country was underwater, according to satellite images from the European Space Agency.
At least 33 million people have been affected by the disaster, said Pakistan's Minister for Climate Change Sherry Rehman. She called the floods "unprecedented" and "the worst humanitarian disaster of this decade."
She highlighted in particular the impact on the south of the country, adding that "maximum" relief efforts are underway.
