Pakistan lake flood threats persist

Thousands evacuated amid fears lake in Hunza Valley may burst and flood villages.

An artificial lake formed by a landslide in January in Pakistan’s northern Hunza Valley is still threatening to burst its banks.

Dozens of villages in the mountaneous border area are potentially at risk of flooding, forcing some 2,000 people to evacuate.

Al Jazeera’s Kamal Hyder reports from Pakistan’s northern province of Gilgit-Baltistan, which is under threat of being inundated.
