A Journey Down Pakistan's Indus River

Wednesday, September 15, 2010

In Pakistan, the Indus River is vital to the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of Pakistanis, and, as we saw last month, has the power to destroy just as many. As the flood waters receded, the BBC's Aleem Maqbool travelled along the river, seeing not only the physical scars left, but also the mental distress left in those communities that witnessed one of the worst natural disasters in their country's history.
