Floodwaters have submerged another town in Pakistan, Sujawal, in southern Sindh.

The Indus River is swollen to 10 times its normal size here.

Officials say the main road connecting the town with Thatta, a major city and logistical centre for the organisation of relief efforts, is also flooded.

The city is reportedly almost abandoned.
