The president, Benigno Aquino, has declared emergency measures to get aid to the many millions of people left destitute by the superstorm, and promised them that "help will reach you faster and faster".

An international relief effort began in earnest on Monday, with a host of countries and organisations including the US, the EU, New Zealand and Australia pledging relief to the Philippines.

The UN humanitarian chief says 10,000 people are feared dead in the city of Tacloban alone. Authorities have said at least 9.7 million people in 41 provinces were affected by the typhoon.
