U.N. appeals for Pakistan aid as flood threat continues

The United Nations appealed Wednesday for $459 million in emergency aid for Pakistan as fresh monsoon rains raised fears that new flooding could drive more people from their homes, deepening the humanitarian catastrophe. It's affected some 14 million people, of whom an estimated 1,600 have been killed and about 2 million left homeless.
