Typhoon Haiyan: Hundreds feared dead in Philippines

Hundreds of people are feared dead in the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan swept through on Friday.

Among the worst-hit areas were the eastern island of Leyte and the coastal city of Tacloban, which saw buildings flattened in a storm surge.

First reports said 100 bodies had been found there but the Red Cross later estimated a figure of more than 1,000, with 200 more deaths in Samar province.

The typhoon is now heading for Vietnam, and is expected to make landfall on Sunday.
