Eight people were crushed to death when thousands of typhoon survivors stormed a government rice warehouse in the typhoon-ravaged Philippines, an official said.
National Food Authority spokesman Rex Estoperez said police and soldiers were helpless when the looting took place in Leyte's Alangalang municipality.
He said the eight were crushed when a wall collapsed. The looters carted away more than 100,000 sacks of rice.
The few surviving residents of a Philippine community devastated by Typhoon Haiyan tell ITV News their home is already a "ghost town".
An RAF plane has left the UK for the Philippines to help with the relief effort following the devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan.
Mother nature can be cruel, and none know that more so than the residents of St Bernard. 7 years ago the village was buried by a landslide.
