BBC News - Pakistan aid 'will not fall to extremists'
Pakistan has sought to reassure international donors that funds to help victims of its devastating flooding will not fall into extremists' hands.
The comments come as the UN said it had received less than half the $460m (£294m) it needs for the relief effort.
But Interior Minister Rehman Malik told the BBC the Taliban would not be allowed to take advantage of the crisis to increase its support.
