At least 136 people have been killed and nearly 2.3 million displaced after torrential rains resulted in flooding of several districts across Sindh, according to Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah.

CM Shah told this to diplomats from the US, Canada, China, Japan, the UAE, France and the UK during a briefing at the CM House Saturday.

An estimated 46,000 animals have died in floods, besides destruction of a large number of houses, he said.
