Three weeks of flooding in Pakistan are set to continue with new heavy rainfall swelling the Indus River and with floodwaters rising steadily in southern Sindh state. Authorites say they expect the number of people in need of immediate help to increase from six to eight million in the days ahead. In the north of the country as well - the new rains are threatening already strained dykes and flood walls as the number of refugees increases.
