MUZAFFARGARH, PAKISTAN – AUGUST 23: The country’s agricultural heartland has been devastated, with rice, corn and wheat crops destroyed by floods. Officials say as many as 20 million people have been effected during Pakistan’s worst flooding in 80 years. The army and aid organizations are struggling to cope with the scope of the wide spread scale of the disaster that has killed over 1,600 people and displaced millions. The UN has described the disaster as unprecedented, with over a third of the country under water. Pakistan braced for more flooding in the south as officials were due to hold talks in Washington on Monday with the International Monetary Fund on how to shore up the battered economy to maintain stability. #flood #Pakistan
