TACLOBAN CITY, Philippines — Dahil sa hagupit ng super typhoon Yolanda sa Samar at Leyte noong Biyernes ng umaga, nag-iwan ito ng maraming casualty sa ilang bayan ng Abuyog Leyte, Tanauan Leyte, Palo Leyte, Tacloban City at maging sa bayan ng Basey Samar.

Pinangangambahang libu-libong tao ang namatay at patuloy pang nadaragdagan hanggang sa kasalukuyan, at marami pa ang nawawala dahil sa natabunan ng mga nasirang bahay at ang iba naman ay kasamang inanod sa dagat.

Dahil dito, marami ngayon ang nagugutom sa mga apektadong lugar partikular sa lungsod ng Tacloban.

Lahat ng malalaking mall, convenient stores, mga bodega ng bigas, maging mga appliance centers ay sinira at sapilitang pinapasok ng mga tao upang makakuha ng anumang bagay na kanilang pakikinabangan.

Kahit may mga pulis at sundalo na nakabantay ay hindi ito pansin ng mga residente.

Ang mga may-ari naman ng building dahil sa takot na saktan ng mga tao ay iniwanan na lamang ang kanilang mga tindahan.

Sa pagbisita ng Pangulong Binigno Aquino III sa Tacloban kahapon, nabanggit nito na magdagdag ng puwersa ng mga pulis at militar upang mapanatili ang peace and order sa lungsod.

Patuloy naman ang panawagan ng mga ating mga kababayan sa ibat-ibang ahensya na sana’y agad na makarating sa kanila ang tulong partikular na ang pagkain at maiinom na tubig. (Jenelyn Gaquit / Ruth Navales, UNTV News)

MANILA, Philippines – Classes in all levels and work in government offices in Tacloban City and other areas in Eastern Visayas have been ordered suspended on Friday, November 8 in commemoration of the sixth anniversary of Super Typhoon Yolanda.

Class and work suspensions have been announced in the following areas:


  • Palo
  • Tacloban City
  • Tanauan


  • Maasin City

‘Yolanda’ (international name: Haiyan) was dubbed as one of the strongest typhoons to hit the land.

More than 6,000 people were killed or went missing while 14 million individuals were affected after the monster storm struck and triggered storm surges that wiped out communities in the Visayas in 2013.

Thousands of people in Baghdad continued their protests at Tahrir Square in central Baghdad on Monday (October 28), defying a curfew scheduled to be imposed from midnight until 6am (2100GMT to 0300 GMT).

Protesters took to the streets for a fourth day, despite having endured bloody clashes over the weekend and an overnight raid by security forces seeking to disperse them.

At least 74 Iraqis were killed and hundreds wounded across the country on Friday (October 25) and Saturday (October 26) as demonstrators clashed with security forces and militia groups in the second wave of this month’s protests against Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi’s government.

More than 200 people have been killed in October so far.

Iraqi security forces on Monday fired tear gas at school and university students who defied a warning from the prime minister and joined anti-government protests.

A spokesman for Abdul Mahdi, whose position is increasingly precarious as he faces the largest challenge since he came to power a year ago, said on Sunday (October 27) that anyone disrupting work or school days would be severely punished.

Mass street protests in Baghdad and other cities in the southern Shi’te heartland against economic hardship began at the start of the month and resumed on Friday after a pause of about two weeks. (Reuters)

US Military: No footage on Baghdadi’s death will be released

Islamic State (IS) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s remains had been disposed of and there were no plans to share footage on his death, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley announced on Monday.

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Sunday that al-Baghdadi had been killed in a U.S. military operation in Syria.

Trump said earlier that part of the footage on the operation would be released, but military sources said that the footage might expose some confidential information about the U.S. military, adding that the footage should go through strict checks before it is published.

The Associated Press on Monday released footage taken by a witness when the U.S. military launched a raid in northwestern Syria — but the authenticity of the footage has not been verified.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov on Monday expressed “prudent welcome” to Baghdadi’s death, saying the U.S. has made a big contribution to fighting terrorism “if confirmed”.

The Russian Defense Ministry said on Sunday that it does not have reliable information about the U.S. operation in the Idlib de-escalation zone in Syria that allegedly killed IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abbas Mousavi on Monday stressed that the extremist ideology and the support for it still exist in the Middle East, and the death of Baghdadi was a “creature” killed by the U.S.

On the same day, Iranian government Spokesman Ali Rabiee said al-Baghdadi’s death is the end of a symbol of “destructive terrorism,” and the U.S. should end its interventions in the Middle East. (Reuters)
