Bodies continue to be recovered nearly two weeks after the devastating Typhoon Haiyan as the official death toll now exceeds 5,000. The typhoon, which ripped through the Philippines, has been described as one of the most powerful typhoons ever to hit land, leaving thousands dead and hundreds of thousands homeless. Countries all over the world have pledged relief aid to help support those affected by the typhoon, but damage to the airport and roads have made moving the aid into the most affected areas very difficult. With dead bodies left out in the open air and very limited food, water and shelter, health concerns are growing. (Photo by The Asahi Shimbun via Getty Images)
