Published on 31 August 2010

Although Pakistan's floodwaters are beginning to recede after the country's month-long drenching, the heads of several U.N. agencies say aid still is in urgent need across the country. (..) The World Food Program's Josette Sheeran said her agency needs $90 million more to double the three million people who have received a month's supply of food. (..) "We still find many of the roads and bridges damaged and destroyed," said Sheeran. "And so it is not necessarily making the operations easy in the areas where there is some receding or [making] planting possible."
