KARACHI, Pakistan — Floodwaters inundated a large town in southern
Pakistan on Sunday, spreading further destruction in an area where
hundreds of thousands of people who fled to higher ground are in dire
need of food and water.
Almost all of Sujawal's 250,000 residents
fled from the town before the water rushed in, but the damage to homes,
clinics and schools added to the widespread devastation the floods have
caused across Pakistan, said Hadi Baksh, a disaster management official
in southern Sindh province.
