Thar death toll climbs to 562 as two more infants die


Two more children died in drought-stricken Tharparkar district on Sunday, taking the total death toll for the current year to 562.

The persistent drought over the last three years has made life very difficult for the 1.6 million strong population of this district. Inadequate health facilities and lack of resources available to the residents has further worsened the situation.
