Editor's Choice - Pictures of the Day - November 27, 2011

Floods in August hit Sindh province in the south of Pakistan, killing at least 430 people and disrupting the lives of nine million. Many people are still camping out in the open with little food, water or shelter ahead of winter. Aid groups warned on November 9 that vital relief efforts for some five million people could be cut back because of a shortfall in foreign donations. A series of photos from these relief camps:
