Floods Kill 50 in Pakistan

Humanitarian agencies report more than 50 people have been killed in floods in Pakistan brought on by heavy monsoon rains that began earlier this month.

The Red Cross says 50,000 people have been affected in the worst hit areas in the province of Baluchistan.

The Pakistani government and relief organizations are pledging food and supplies to help those displaced by the flooding. But there are concerns that worsening weather conditions could hamper those relief efforts.

Some information for this report was provided by AFP.
