The death toll from a heatwave in Pakistan's southern Sindh province has passed 1,000.

Local media say that at least 950 people have died in Karachi, with tens of thousands being treated for heatstroke and dehydration.

Officials have been criticised for not doing enough to tackle the crisis.

Severe electricity cuts in Karachi have angered residents as they have been left without working air-conditioning units and fans.

Last month, nearly 1,700 people died in a heatwave in neighbouring India.
