probability problem

Hello,
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......n1)
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.
Thx Ng\agendra
