Picking up the pieces in Balochistan after the rains
The stench of stagnant water fills Jhatpat, one of the main towns in Jaffarabad, in the northern Pakistani province of Balochistan.
The congested streets have become unbearable since the September monsoon rains, which have neither drained nor evaporated due to blocked sewage lines and dropping temperatures. Mosquitoes and other insects are spreading malaria, diarrhoea and skin infections.
