The United Nations called for help to immunize children against disease in quake-hit Pakistan on the eve of the Muslim holiday Eid-al-Fitr.
Speaking on behalf of the U.N. Children's Agency (UNICEF), Jordan's Queen Rania warned that outbreaks are threatening some four million children in the country.
UNICEF officials say they are planning a measles vaccination program to help thousands of children who are living in tent settlements.
Rescue workers also warned that cases of acute respiratory infection and diarrhea have been increasing in areas affected by the earthquake.
Meanwhile, U.N. officials said NATO had agreed to continue operating airlifts to deliver relief supplies in Pakistan, where some 73-thousand people died from the quake.
And the commander of U.S.-led forces in Afghanistan, Lt. Gen. Karl Eikenberry said troops and helicopters diverted from the country would continue offering assistance in Pakistan.
