Pakistan's president appealed to the world on Tuesday to help more than 1 million people facing "a human catastrophe" because they were forced to flee their homes in a Taliban stronghold in the Swat Valley during the ongoing government offensive launched after heavy US pressure. Standing beside UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, President Asif Ali Zardari said the UN chief was joining in an appeal for humanitarian assistance.
