BBC News - Pakistan aid 'will not fall to extremists'

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.
The shortfall has been blamed on fears over corruption and Taliban influence.
But Interior Minister Rehman Malik told the BBC the Taliban would not be allowed to take advantage of the crisis to increase its support.
"I assure the entire international community who would be supplying aid in any form, we give them assurance we will be auditable, he said, adding that the government was considering hiring international auditors to oversee the use of funds.
