Typhoon survivors' grim struggle amid corpses

Survivors root through the splintered wreckage of their homes searching for loved ones who may be buried beneath. Others are scrambling to find food and water in areas littered with corpses.

Three days after Super Typhoon Haiyan, one of the strongest storms in recorded history, scythed across the central Philippines, people here are struggling to grasp the enormity of what they have lost and the challenges they still face.

The storm, known as Yolanda in the Philippines, has left devastation on a monumental scale in its wake.

    In this country the good and the smart people always finish last. The bad and stupid will conquer and that's what's wrong with this country. Otherwise this country is still the best country on the planet!
