KARACHI: Recent heavy monsoon rains and flash floods in Sindh left more than 182 people dead and over five million displaced, said a news report on Friday.

According to statistics issued by the Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA), 31 children and 79 women were among the dead.

The BBC Urdu service reported that the initial survey conducted by the PDMA said that only two lakh rain-hit people were residing in official relief camps.

Rain victims held demonstrations in many rain-affected areas of the province in protest against non-provision of relief goods and lack of facilities at relief camps.

President Asif Ali Zardari had on Thursday appealed to the international community for humanitarian and rehabilitation assistance for the affected people.
