Death toll from floods crosses 1,200 nationwide

Record monsoon rains and melting glaciers in northern mountains have triggered floods that have killed at least 1,208 people across the country, including 416 children, and injured 6,082, according to the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA).

The devastation is now spreading southward.

The raised level is a consequence of a surge in the flow of water down Indus river, with monstrous floods leaving a trail of destruction in the country’s northern regions.
