Typhoon Haiyan: Survivors appeal for help

Typhoon HaiyanTropical Storm Haiyan, which killed thousands as a typhoon in the Philippines, has made landfall in north Vietnam, near the China border.

In the Philippines, where the storm had the strength of a typhoon, the aid operation has been hampered by bad weather.

Millions of people have been affected and relief workers are struggling to get supplies into the worst-hit areas.

The exact number of dead is still unknown – but it is believed that more than 10,000 residents died in the city of Tacloban alone.
