Pakistan floods 'hit 14m people'

At least sixteen hundred people have died, as the floodwaters that initially hit north-western areas of the country move southwards through the Indus River. Correspondent Shoaib Hasan explains how the floods could get worse, as it is only midway through monsoon season.
