A Filipino woman holding a baby runs during a downpour in the super typhoon-devastated city of Tacloban, Philippines. International aid poured in for the Philippines as authorities stepped up efforts to reach survivors driven to looting after one of the world’'s strongest typhoons devastated their towns. A tropical depression brought heavy rains over the central and eastern Philippines, where provinces badly hit by Haiyan are located, raising concerns that relief operations would be hampered.


A boy looks at the debris of destroyed houses in Tacloban after Super Typhoon Haiyan, the most powerful storm in the world this year, hit the Philippines. The Philippine government said it had deployed armored vehicles, set up checkpoints and imposed a curfew to help end looting.

A Syrian boy holds bottles of water in a refugee camp in the town of Harmanli, south-east of Sofia, Bulgaria. Bulgaria's asylum centers are severely overcrowded after the arrival of almost 10,000 refugees this year, half of them Syrian. The influx has fueled anti-immigrant sentiment in a country already struggling with dire poverty.


Afghan refugee Hasanat Mohammed, 5, poses for a picture while standing outside his home in a poor neighborhood on the outskirts of Islamabad, Pakistan. Pakistan hosts over 1.6 million registered Afghans, the largest and most protracted refugee population in the world, according to the U.N. refugee agency.
