Philippine police and soldiers are deployed to stop rampant looting in the aftermath of Super Typhoon Haiyan in Tacloban in the eastern Philippine island of Leyte on November 11, 2013. The United States, Australia and the United Nations mobilised emergency aid to the Philippines as the scale of the devastation unleashed by Super Typhoon Haiyan emerged on November 11.
In the central Philippines, stunned survivors have been picking through the remains of their homes and pleading for food and medicine as Typhoon Haiyan makes its way.
The typhoon is thought to have killed thousands of people in one city alone, Tacloban.
The BBC's Jon Donnison reports from the Tacloban.
