Pakistan: 163 killed in rain-related incidents

Islamabad, Aug 31 (UNI) The National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) said in a report that torrential rains in Pakistan killed at least 163 people and injured 101 others in separate incidents.
According to the report of the news agency Xinhua, the NDMA on Sunday shared data of casualties from 15 June to 30 August on its website, saying that rescue and relief operations are continuing in the areas affected by government departments, military and non-governmental organisations.
Sindh province was the worst hit where 61 people were killed and 22 others injured.
Provincial capital Karachi was worst-hit in the rains where urban flooding brought life to a standstill.
According to local media reports, 90 per cent of commercial activities were halted due to the heavy rains that were still lashing the city.
A total of 48 people died and 44 others injured in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, the NDMA said.
The NDMA has provided tents, food items, blankets, mosquito nets, among others, in the affected areas.
