Gilani sends thanks PM for flood aid with mangoes

The Prime Minister's Office received five boxes of mangoes from the Prime Minister of Pakistan, a PMO spokesman said here.

Earlier in the day, Pakistan had accepted India's offer of USD five million in aid for flood relief in the country.

Singh had spoken to Gilani yesterday and offered more assistance in handling flood relief.
Three weeks of unusually heavy monsoon rains triggered flash floods in Khyber-Paktunkhwa, Punjab, Balochistan and Sindh provinces of Pakistan, affecting 20 million people.

Over 1,700 people have died and the UN says more than 650,000 people are without shelter while six million desperately need emergency aid. Tens of thousands of villages are still under water.
