Typhoon-struck Philippine city begins mass burial

These children seek help in Tacloban, Philippines, Wednesday after they say they fled when armed men were seen in their village. Since the storm, people have broken into homes, malls and garages, where they have stripped the shelves of food, water and other goods. Authorities have struggled to stop the looting. There have been unconfirmed reports of armed gangs involved.
