Pakistani villagers chase relief supplies dropped from a Pakistani navy helicopter at a flooded area of Ghaus Pur near Sukkur, in Pakistan's Sindh province, Wednesday, Aug. 11, 2010. The U.N., relying on Pakistani figures, said the number of people affected by flooding over the past two weeks is 13.8 million, more than the combined total of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, the 2005 Kashmir earthquake and the 2010 Haiti earthquake, although the death toll in each of those disasters was much higher than the 1,500 people killed in the floods.
