The United Nations Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, has left Pakistan after describing floods there as the worst disaster he has ever witnessed.
The UN has appealed for nearly half-a billion dollars to fund emergency relief in Pakistan, but so far only a quarter of that amount has been raised.
Correspondents say relief workers are struggling to cope with the scale of the devastation and more people are being forced to flee their homes by rising flood waters.
Pascal Cuttat, the head of the International Committee of the Red Cross in Pakistan, is one of those trying to tackle the massive relief effort.
