UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has expressed sympathies with the victims of the deadly heat-wave in Karachi and offered UN help to cope with the serious situation.


A spokesman of the World Body Chief told newsmen at a briefing in New York that so far Pakistan has not requested for UN assistance.

The spokesman, however, said that the United Nations would respond positively if a request comes from Pakistan to deal with the situation.
