Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif declared an emergency on Tuesday as the nation's southern Sindh province suffered through the third day of a heatwave that's claimed more than 700 lives. Pakistan has ordered the National Disaster Management Authority and army troops to set up heat stroke centers to help overwhelmed hospitals as suffocating temperatures reached 113 degrees. At least 744 people have died in Karachi and 38 others in other parts of the province, a government official told Dawn. The hot weather has sparked angry protests from residents who blame the government and Karachi's power utility, K-Electric, for a slow response to the crisis and climbing death toll.
