Severe rains and flooding have killed more than 1,100 people in Pakistan since mid-June, officials said, News.Az reports citing CNN. 

Floodwaters are threatening to cover up to a third of the country by the end of the monsoon season.

At least 33 million people have been affected by the disaster, said Pakistan's Minister for Climate Change Sherry Rehman. She called the floods "unprecedented" and "the worst humanitarian disaster of this decade."

She highlighted in particular the impact on the south of the country, adding that "maximum" relief efforts are underway.
