Pakistani Army drops supplies to flood victims, rescues stranded

Pakistan's army is working to get food and shelter to people hit by catastrophic flooding.

Pilots spent the weekend dropping supplies onto dry land while helicopters came to the rescue of those left stranded. Army officials say more than 4,400 people were saved Saturday. Thousands more were given tents.

Meanwhile, the town of Dadu in Sindh Province faces a new threat. Local authorities are preparing to breach a key transport link to let water flow and save the community from further flooding.

Record monsoon rains have so far killed over 1,300 people, and another 33 million are affected by floods that have destroyed homes and farmland. Pakistan is looking abroad for help to rebuild.

The United Nations is asking for 160 million dollars in aid.
