The World Bank has raised its financial aid package for the typhoon-hit Philippines to almost $1 billion (£600 million).
It has offered $480 million on top of the $500 million emergency loan it previously pledged to the country, to support relief and reconstruction in the central Philippines.
The top-up came as the death toll from the typhoon rose above 5,300, with more than 1,600 people still missing and around four million still homeless.
