Report Says 'No End To Humanitarian Crises' In Pakistan

A new report by a nongovernmental group says three years of catastrophic floods and the internal displacement of hundreds of thousands of people due to military operations and militancy have offered Pakistan's radical Islamist groups "opportunities to recruit and increased the potential for conflict."

The Brussels-based International Crisis Group warns in its latest report, "Pakistan: No End to Humanitarian Crises," that "the recurrent natural and conflict-driven humanitarian crises, which have put the lives and livelihoods of so many at risk and aggravated economic hardships, need urgent and coordinated action."

The report warns that the humanitarian needs of those affected "will go unmet in the absence of a coordinated approach by all humanitarian aid actors involved."
