    Tropical storm Nock-Ten moved out of northern areas of the Philippines' main island Luzon after killing 25 people, disaster and weather officials said.

    Nock-Ten, the tenth storm to hit the poor Southeast Asian country this year, spared major rice-producing provinces, caused only minor damage to rice farms and coconut-growing areas when it hit land mid-morning on Wednesday.
