Residents (behind) watch as others (front) grab looted goods thrown out from the second floor of a warehouse in the town of Guiuan, Eastern Samar province in the central Philippines on November 11, 2013, only days after Super Typhoon Haiyan devastated the town on November 8. Philippines rescue workers struggled to bring aid to famished and destitute survivors on November 11 after the super typhoon that may have killed more than 10,000 people, in what is feared to be the country's worst natural disaster.

We turn now to the Philippines, where more emergency aid is starting to trickle in to the areas hit by Typhoon Haiyan.

And one area that's now receiving some help from the government is the northern part of Cebu Island. 

The BBC's Paul Moss reports.
