Manila floods: Operation clean-up begins

Residents of the Philippines capital, Manila, are hard at work fixing damaged homes and stores in flood-hit communities now confronted with huge mounds of mud-caked debris.

The waters are now receding, but officials say it is still not safe for people to leave emergency shelters.

Officials say that many flood victims still need food, blankets and medicine.

More rain is expected in the coming days and a typhoon is expected to hit the country early next week.
