The Czech Republic has dispatched a special aid plane to Islamabad to help treat the victims of earthquake hit Pakistan. The plane was not loaded with humanitarian aid, as originally planned, but carried all materials necessary to fully equip a field hospital, including 30 beds. A team of 14 civilian and military medical workers and nine fire fighters are also on board the plane.
The Czech government has earmarked 25 million crowns (a little over one million US dollars) for aid to northern Pakistan.
