Pakistan is reeling from the monsoon flooding as the death toll has climbed to more than a thousand.

About 30 people lost their lives over the past 24 hours.

The National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) says they are still trying to reach villages in the mountainous north which have been cut-off and are believed to be the worst affected.

Islamabad has appealed for international aid and support. It has already declared a national emergency as more than 30 million people or one in seven Pakistanis are affected. The

NDMA says more than 800 000 hectares of cultivated crops have been destroyed by the severe floods, and some 3 000 kilometers of roads have been damaged, and nearly 160 bridges have been washed away.
