The death toll from massive floods in northwestern Pakistan rose to 1,100 on Sunday as rescue workers struggled to save more than 27,000 people still trapped by the raging water, officials said.
The toll from the flooding could go higher since rescue workers have been unable to access certain areas, said Adnan Khan, a disaster management official.
Almost 700 people have drowned in the Peshawar valley, which includes the districts of Nowshera and Charsada, and 115 others are still missing, Khan said.
The districts of Swat and Shangla have also been hit hard and have suffered more than 400 deaths, said Mujahid Khan, the head of rescue services for the Edhi Foundation, a private charity.
Where is the criminal elite of Pakistan??N league?F league?D league?Q league?MQM league?
Bilawal Zardari??Where is he?Is he helping the victims?Or whoring in UK with white *****s?
He would like to rule Pakistan??Any one?Even people like Sehar Ali Shah who were rescued by the government complained that authorities didn't provide shelter that would allow them to stay until the flood waters receded.
"My son drowned, but I don't see the government taking care of us," said Shah after returning to his half-submerged house in the city of Nowshera. "The government has not managed an alternate place to shift us."
