UN chief Guterres urges 'massive investments' for Pakistan flood recovery


UN chief Antonio Guterres calls for "massive investments" to help Pakistan recover from last year's devastating floods. "Rebuilding Pakistan in a resilient way will run in excess of 16 billion US dollars, and far more will be needed in the longer term," the UN's Secretary-General tells an international conference in Geneva, which is seeking billions of dollars in donor pledges and other support for the flood-hit country.
