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 worldÂ’'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.
