Typhoon Haiyan tears through the Philippines

One of the most powerful storms ever to hit land has torn through the Philippines, with sustained winds of up to 320 km/h (199mph).

Officials warned 12 million people were at risk from Typhoon Haiyan, which has killed at least four people and forced more than 750,000 people to leave their homes.
