Typhoon Bopha has killed at least 283 people in the Philippines since making landfall earlier this week, and hundreds remain missing as rescue teams battle blocked roads and flooded areas to reach survivors. "Entire families were washed away," said Interior Minister Manuel Roxas. The southern island of Mindanao, where 160 people have been killed, bore the brunt of the storm, which is reportedly weakening as it moves west.
