Typhoon Haiyan: International aid 'finally arrives'

International aid finally reached the Philippines on Thursday, almost a week after Typhoon Haiyan ravaged the country's coastline.

A US aircraft carrier and its escort of two cruisers brought food and supplies to the region and further help is expected to arrive in the coming days.

Relief efforts across the worst hit areas are now said to be progressing, with many typhoon victims being buried in mass graves.
