Philippine typhoon survivors struggle to cope

Many survivors in Tacloban, the worst hit area, are still suffering a week after Typhoon Haiyan struck.

    Dead bodies still litter the road sides, like garbage, one survivor said, waiting to be picked up, while the living struggle for basic necessities.

    Running water is now a prized commodity while petrol is in high demand.
