Authorities in Pakistan were battling on Monday to save a city in the flood-devastated province of Sindh, after a mass evacuation, as flood waters threatened to wreak further havoc.

Thousands of people were evacuated, from Shahdadkot, with most residents escorted to safety or making a getaway by any possible means.

“We are right now trying to protect Shahdadkot... which is threatened by the rising flood waters,” Sindh provincial irrigation minister Jam Saifullah Dharejo said.

He said an embankment built to protect the city was under pressure from the waters.
