I am stuck with a probability problem. Here is the problem. Any help would be great.

There are N samples each have probability of Pi (i=0......n-1)

I want to find out probability of at least K of them occurs. Each is sampled only once. If probability of N events to be same it would have simpler. now since probability is different , not sure how to calculate this. Please also mention logic behind the calculations.
