A “monster monsoon” barreled down on Pakistan, destroying entire villages and displacing more than 3 million people. The heavy rain that began in June is causing flash floods all along the Indus River, from the north of the country to the south.

The government is calling on the international community for help, saying they can’t cope with the disaster on their own.
