S Korea to provide $200,000 in flood relief aid


South Korea will offer emergency relief supplies worth 200,000 U.S. dollars to flood victims in Pakistan, the foreign ministry said here on Tuesday.
Heavy rains triggered massive floods in southern Pakistan, which have killed 226 people, affected some five million people and inundated 40,000 acres of land.
Seoul will deliver relief supplies including tents, blankets and water purification tablets starting Wednesday, according to the foreign ministry.
The supplies are expected to reach Pakistan on Sunday.
