World wrap - 14/07/2005

Pakistan – 128 died in the country’s worst train disaster in more than 10 years. Three trains collided near Ghothi, 430 km north-east of Karachi. Having suffered terrible floods China is now being struck by a heatwave. Spain too is seeing water shortages as temperatures soar into the mid 30s. And following Hurricane Dennis which swept through the gulf of Mexico and up through Louisiana, another is on its way. Dennis avoided most of Florida but caused widespread damage and killed many people in Haiti and Cuba before heading north into the US mainland where considerable damage ws caused. Hurricane Emily is the fifth this year and the outlook is not good according to experts.
