Pakistan warns of further floods

Pakistan has issued new flood warnings, as heavy rains are expected to inflict more misery on areas where at least 1,500 people have already been killed and 980,000 more have lost their homes.

The latest downpour on Tuesday threatened to overwhelm a dam in the country’s northwest, while the waters surged through dozens of villages in Punjab, the most populous province.
