Pictures have shown the devastation caused by widespread flooding in Pakistan which has killed more than 1,000 people and left nearly a million homes damaged.

International aid has been reaching the country on Monday while efforts have continued to try to evacuate many thousands of people stranded by conditions driven by “monster monsoons”.

The authorities say this year’s devastation is worse than in 2010, when floods killed 1,700 people.

The conditions have swept away villages, crops and 800,000 livestock – but there are fears the flooding may not have yet peaked.
