The aid mission for survivors of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines is starting to gain ground, six days after the powerful storm struck. Among those delivering relief supplies in the central Philippines are US navy helicopters.
Other US military aircraft, like these Ospreys from the US Navy Ship Charles Drew, are helping in relief operations. US aircraft carrier USS George Washington is also arriving in the affected area to assist in search-and-rescue operations and move supplies.
Almost a week after the storm struck, many people are in need of food and water. In Tacloban city on the island of Leyte, one of the hardest-hit areas, people waited for a few days' worth of supplies.
This man in Tanauan, Leyte, holds up a sign asking for food amid the rubble of houses destroyed by the typhoon, which officials say killed more than 2,300 people.
Communication has been difficult following the typhoon. In Tacloban city, survivors braved a downpour to charge their mobile phones at a government-provided power generator.
Some residents are expressing anger at how long it is taking aid to reach them. People in areas like Hernani in eastern Samar have been waiting for days.
Members of the Philippine military have been moving the injured to safer ground, while health experts have warned that there is a danger of infectious diseases spreading.
Officials are starting to deal with the scores of decaying bodies, many of which were taken to mass graves to be buried.
