More than 120 people have died during a heat-wave in Pakistan's southern Sindh province.

Health officials say most of the deaths have been in Karachi, which has seen temperatures as high as 45 degrees Celsius in recent days.

The city has seen power cuts, caused by an increased demand for electricity caused by the extreme weather. The majority of the victims were elderly.

Since Saturday, 114 people have died in Karachi and 8 others in 3 districts of Sindh. Nearly 1,700 died in a heat-wave in neighbouring India last month.
