Typhoon Haiyan: Larger aircraft to increase Philippines aid

Larger aircraft will start arriving in the Philippines on Wednesday, which aid agencies hope will allow more people to receive the supplies they desperately need.

He said: "This will completely change the pace of our build-up of supplies."
