Fresh floods hit Pakistan's Sindh province, forcing hundreds of thousands to flee from their homes, hampering relief efforts in an area already devastated by record-breaking rain.

Floodwaters submerge dozens more towns and villages in the south as the Indus river breached its banks yet again, a sign that the worst is yet to come.

Doctors have warned that stagnant water and unsanitary conditions could cause a disease pandemic.

Al Jazeera's Imran Khan reports from a rural health centre in Sindh's Khanpur district, in southern Pakistan.
