Up to 100 dead in Filipino floods
More than 80 people are confirmed dead and around 32 are missing after a tropical storm swept through the Filipino capital Manila.
Tropical Storm Ketsana, which local officials have said was the worst in 40 years, poured a month's rainfall in less than 12 hours.
Towns were washed away and people had to cling to debris as they were swept into rivers and or flooded roads.
