Pakistan floods: where is Zardari?
The UN has described the ongoing floods in Pakistan as a major catastrophe and warmed that more than 4 million people are affected. Around 1,500 people have died and the rains are spreading south. Anger against the government continues to mount over what is widely perceived as its slow response, especially since President Zardari chose to continue his diplomatic tour in Europe.
