Filipinos suffer from shortage of typhoon aid
Newborn babies lie in an overcrowded maternity ward in a hospital in the storm damaged town of Bogo, northern Cebu, Nov 13, 2013. Five days after Typhoon Haiyan tore through the central Philippines, killing thousands and destroying whole towns, headlines have mostly focused on chaos in and around the city of Tacloban on the island of Leyte. But further west, on Cebu, Haiyan left a trail of equally violent desolation. Aid is still only dribbling in, while the most basic of necessities are lacking. The hospital has been without electricity since Friday, while aid into the devastated area has only been a trickle. [Photo/Agencies]
