Why is the death toll so high each week in Pakistan on the news?
Every time I read the news I see another disaster in Pakistan.
Didn't they just have like a plane crash with over 100 people.
Then I'm reading today something happened with about 40+ people being killed.
Is certain media just chosen to focus on them a lot?

Also a law suit has not been filed yet by U.S. Citizens against the Governments and pharmaceutical companies for creating false security by letting people think Aids is primarily a disease of impoverished

The death toll from natural and man-made disasters can be quite large sometimes. There's nothing unusual about Pakistan in that regard.
