    Philippines landslide kills hundreds of people

    According to today's Independent, hundreds of people have died, and 1,500 people are missing following a landslide in the eastern Philippines:

    Gordon appealed for US troops, currently in the country for a series of joint military exercises, to send heavy-lift helicopters to the landslide scene. A C-130 Philippine military transport plane was to fly to Leyte later Friday, carrying search equipment and a team of sniffer dogs. A US military spokesman, Capt. Dennis Palmer, said American forces were ready to help as soon as they receive an official request from the Philippine government.
