Captured: Flooding in Pakistan

Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani recently said that the floods in Pakistan have affected 20 million people – that’s more than the combined total of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, the 2005 Kashmir earthquake and the 2010 Haiti earthquake.

The picture, above, was taken on Monday, August 9, 2010 and shows Pakistani villagers chasing relief supplies dropped from an army helicopter in a heavy flood-hit area of Mithan Kot, in central Pakistan.
