This is BBC World News Today. Almost a week after Typhoon Haiyan

:00:00.:00:09.

swept through the central Philippines, major aid supplies are

:00:10.:00:16.

now getting through. The US military arrives in force, helping more aid

:00:17.:00:18.

deliveries across the devastated region, especially in remote areas.

:00:19.:00:25.

As the grim and monumental task of cleaning up continues, we look at

:00:26.:00:28.

the health hazards for survivors of the disaster.

:00:29.:00:33.

Also coming up: We report from the Commonwealth Summit in Colombo,

:00:34.:00:36.

where the Sri Lankan Government warns critics its human rights

:00:37.:00:49.

record is not up for discussion He wants to complain about human

:00:50.:00:53.

rights in Sri Lanka. We have a system. You must respect this

:00:54.:01:02.

system. A German company is ordered to pay

:01:03.:01:05.

compensation to 1700 women fitted with defective breast implants.

:01:06.:01:09.

And India's biggest sporting legend plays his last international match

:01:10.:01:12.

after more than two decades at the top of the game.

:01:13.:01:27.

Hello and welcome. The massive international relief

:01:28.:01:32.

effort in the Philippines is gaining a bit of traction today, although it

:01:33.:01:35.

is almost a week since Typhoon Haiyan tore through the country But

:01:36.:01:40.

the UN humanitarian chief Valerie Amos has admitted that the UN could

:01:41.:01:45.

have done more to help the people of the Philippines. Well, now a US

:01:46.:01:49.

aircraft carrier has arrived off the island of Leyte, bringing with it

:01:50.:01:55.

several heavy-lift helicopters. That will triple the number of helicopter

:01:56.:01:59.

flights delivering aid. The Philippines Government has been

:02:00.:02:02.

criticised over its slow response to the devastation. The local media has

:02:03.:02:06.

accused President Aquino of not being up to the job. But the

:02:07.:02:14.

situation is improving. The US aircraft carrier USS George

:02:15.:02:17.

Washington and its escort of two cruisers have arrived off the

:02:18.:02:20.

Philippines coast. It will help to distribute supplies to inaccessible

:02:21.:02:23.

areas. Britain has sent nearly ,000 shelter kits to Cebu and more are

:02:24.:02:29.

expected in the coming days. Rice and canned goods have been

:02:30.:02:31.

distributed to 50,000 people in Tacloban. About ten tonnes of High

:02:32.:02:40.

Energy Biscuits - enough to feed 30,000 people for a day - have also

:02:41.:02:45.

been delivered to Tacloban. Our first report this evening is from

:02:46.:02:48.

Rupert Wingfield Hayes, who has spent the day in Tacloban.

:02:49.:02:54.

It has taken nearly a week. But today, the might of the US Marine

:02:55.:02:58.

Corps finally arrived in Tacloban in force. And not just the Americans,

:02:59.:03:04.

but from France and Germany -- Eldon, Malaysia and as Chile. -

:03:05.:03:10.

Australia. But the Americans have taken control you. Not a lot was

:03:11.:03:17.

happening. It was like everyone was recovering from the shock of it It

:03:18.:03:22.

seems like the Philippine military and police are getting organised and

:03:23.:03:25.

getting on with organising civilians to get them out of here. On the

:03:26.:03:29.

streets be on the airport, there has been a dramatic change as well.

:03:30.:03:35.

After week of lying in the open the dead and now being counted, bagged

:03:36.:03:42.

and removed for burial. In this one district alone this morning, police

:03:43.:03:44.

registered more than 100 dead bodies. It is a grim task, even for

:03:45.:03:52.

those trained to deal with death. I know you are a policeman, but is it

:03:53.:03:58.

shocking? Yes, yes, yes. It is shocking for us. It is a disaster.

:03:59.:04:10.

We have something to do, sir. I understand. One of the most

:04:11.:04:15.

important thing to work out the true death toll. This afternoon, we

:04:16.:04:19.

returned to a devastated neighbourhoods down by the sea. Even

:04:20.:04:26.

here, some progress is being made. None of this might look like much of

:04:27.:04:29.

an improvement, but believe me, it is. I came down here on Monday and

:04:30.:04:34.

this road was totally impassable. It was piled high with Debbie and

:04:35.:04:37.

falling trees. We had to clamber over to getting here. Today at house

:04:38.:04:44.

-- it has been cleared. This building behind me was used as a

:04:45.:04:47.

model and was piled with their bodies. Those have also gone. But it

:04:48.:04:55.

is not only the dead who have gone. Every day, more and more of the

:04:56.:04:59.

living and leaving as well. The house where I met a man and his

:05:00.:05:05.

three boys on Monday is now empty. His wife's freshly covered grave is

:05:06.:05:10.

in the garden behind. I ask a neighbour if he knows where they

:05:11.:05:17.

have gone. Manila with his boys Yes. A ghost town now. However much

:05:18.:05:25.

international help now it is, for some here, it will be impossible to

:05:26.:05:28.

overcome the agony and worse of the last few days. -- agony and loss.

:05:29.:05:39.

Much of the focus so far has been on the city of Tacloban as we saw in

:05:40.:05:41.

that report. The island of Leyte is one of the

:05:42.:05:46.

worst hit in the Philippines. But our correspondent Alastiar Leithead

:05:47.:05:48.

has travelled from the northwest of the island to its east coast to find

:05:49.:05:52.

out how more remote areas are coping. He's sent this report.

:05:53.:06:00.

Under clear skies, it is hard to imagine the terror but blew into

:06:01.:06:06.

this beautiful island. The scars in this area update. It is an

:06:07.:06:11.

agricultural economy and broken coconut palms are lost income for

:06:12.:06:16.

mail and years to come. Likelihoods and homes have been crushed. Rice

:06:17.:06:22.

paddies and banana plantations have been flattened and food stocks which

:06:23.:06:24.

survived the storm are now running low. We drove from west to east

:06:25.:06:33.

People were starting to cope with the new normal - shortage and

:06:34.:06:41.

uncertainty. There waiting for a bus to take them anywhere there is a

:06:42.:06:47.

mobile phone signal and to get food. We do not receive any donations

:06:48.:06:57.

Other areas do not have that. Down in the island's interior, the extent

:06:58.:07:01.

of the disaster unfolded in front of us. After striking the city of

:07:02.:07:08.

Tacloban, it powered West Dennis agricultural valley, destroying

:07:09.:07:13.

everything in its path. Imagine the strength it takes to bring down the

:07:14.:07:19.

street. There is fear here in Alangalang that some prisoners have

:07:20.:07:21.

escaped and people are getting desperate for food. This man is

:07:22.:07:26.

taking his daughters to Manila for safety. No food, no communication or

:07:27.:07:34.

anything. For the safety of myself and children, we're going to Manila.

:07:35.:07:40.

Are you worried? We are scared for our safety gear. Very desperate

:07:41.:07:48.

When a person is desperate to have food, they do whatever they can to

:07:49.:07:54.

have food. It is even more miserable when the rain comes and seeps

:07:55.:07:57.

through the thrown together shelters. The bulk of the aid effort

:07:58.:08:04.

has focused on the areas worst affected, and you can understand

:08:05.:08:09.

why. This is an area right on the coast that took the full force of

:08:10.:08:13.

the type -- typhoon. But up the road, there are people who are not

:08:14.:08:18.

as badly off as this but are running short of basic supplies. Unless the

:08:19.:08:21.

aid network widens quickly, this country faces an even greater

:08:22.:08:29.

catastrophe. We hope to be getting a response on

:08:30.:08:34.

the humanitarian relief effort in little later in this programme. Now,

:08:35.:08:38.

time for the other news. Suicide bombers are targeting Pilgrims in

:08:39.:08:44.

Iraq and have killed more than 0 people and wounded dozens more. The

:08:45.:08:50.

attacks coincide with the most important event in the Shia

:08:51.:08:56.

calendar. It commemorates the death of the Prophet Mohammed's death in

:08:57.:09:02.

battle. There has also been a rally in Lebanon with crowds in Beirut to

:09:03.:09:07.

hear an address from the leader of Hezbollah. He has pledged to keep

:09:08.:09:11.

forces in Syria, fighting alongside President Assad's trips. -- troops.

:09:12.:09:20.

The former German president has gone on trial for the option charges

:09:21.:09:26.

Mister Wolfe, a former ally of Angela Merkel, resigned from the

:09:27.:09:29.

presidency last year after West than two years in the post. He is accused

:09:30.:09:34.

of accepting payments from a film producer in return for favours. He

:09:35.:09:42.

denies the allegations. The Sri Lankan President Mahinda

:09:43.:09:44.

Rajapaksa has defended his government's human rights record on

:09:45.:09:47.

the eve of the Commonwealth Summit in Colombo. He said his Government

:09:48.:09:51.

"had nothing to hide". Sri Lanka has been criticised for its refusal to

:09:52.:09:54.

allow an independent inquiry into its treatment of Tamils at the end

:09:55.:10:00.

of the country's civil war in 2 09. In a moment we will hear why the

:10:01.:10:04.

Labour opposition here believes the prime-minister David Cameron

:10:05.:10:06.

should've boycotted the summit, first our correspondent Charles

:10:07.:10:08.

Haviland sent this report from Colombo.

:10:09.:10:16.

Mister Cameron says it is only by attending the summit and making this

:10:17.:10:20.

writing president that he can raise difficult human rights issues. He

:10:21.:10:24.

will make one new departure. He will be the first leader to visit the

:10:25.:10:29.

Tamil moth of the island since independence in 1948. The Government

:10:30.:10:35.

war against the Tamil Tigers, a ruthless separatist group, lasted

:10:36.:10:37.

three decades and caused over 100,000 deaths. After an all-out

:10:38.:10:42.

army offensive, they were crushed four years ago. Both sides were

:10:43.:10:47.

accused of atrocities but with most Tiger leaders dead, it is the

:10:48.:10:50.

Government that gets the brunt of accusations. Mister Cameron has just

:10:51.:10:54.

been in India. Speaking to journalists, here is -- repeated his

:10:55.:10:58.

message of toughness for the shoreline. There must be proper

:10:59.:11:03.

enquiries for what happened at the end of the war. I think we will get

:11:04.:11:10.

further by going and having conversations with the Sri Lankan's

:11:11.:11:13.

about what needs to happen and shining a light about the problems

:11:14.:11:19.

that are there. The shoreline can Government is on the defensive.

:11:20.:11:23.

Speaking this morning, the president said they had been suffering for 30

:11:24.:11:26.

years, not just at the end of the war. If anyone wants to complain

:11:27.:11:34.

about human rights violations, whether it is torture or rape, we

:11:35.:11:40.

have a system. You must respect the system of the country. Meanwhile,

:11:41.:11:45.

the Prince of Wales, representing the Queen, flew in with the Duchess

:11:46.:11:50.

of Cornwall. They will attend a reception for his 65th birthday

:11:51.:11:55.

before he opens the summit tomorrow. Kerry McCarthy is a Labour Member of

:11:56.:11:59.

Parliament in the UK and a front bench spokesperson on Foreign

:12:00.:12:05.

Affairs. She joins me from Bristol in the West of England. Your boss

:12:06.:12:12.

Douglas Alexander says David Cameron should have boycotted that summit.

:12:13.:12:19.

Why did he say that? The prime minister of Canada and the Indian

:12:20.:12:21.

prime minister have decided to boycotted the cause Sri Lanka have

:12:22.:12:25.

simply not made progress on human rights that they promised they would

:12:26.:12:30.

do after the end of the war. The Canadian prime minister has said

:12:31.:12:33.

since August 2011 that if there was not progress made, he would boycott.

:12:34.:12:36.

We watched David Cameron to do the same, the fact that an event was

:12:37.:12:45.

about to happen in Colombo, he could have used it as a way to put

:12:46.:12:49.

pressure on show anchor and the Government. He has barely mentioned

:12:50.:12:51.

the issue of human rights until he has arrived in the lank and has been

:12:52.:12:54.

put under public pressure to do so and it is too little and too late.

:12:55.:13:04.

-- arrived in the lank. The decision to post that ensure lank was taken

:13:05.:13:07.

by the Commonwealth when Labour was in power in 2009. They were due to

:13:08.:13:17.

host it in 2011 and Gordon Brown made the case that it wasn't right

:13:18.:13:21.

to hold it then. It was put off until 2013. It was taken under the

:13:22.:13:30.

auspices of a Labour Government It's because the Sulangan Government

:13:31.:13:32.

made allsorts of promises about addressing the human rights

:13:33.:13:39.

situation. They had been through a very difficult and prolonged

:13:40.:13:42.

conflict. They said they would address these issues and it would be

:13:43.:13:44.

justice for the people that suffered. But we have actually seen

:13:45.:13:50.

is continued human rights abuses. Now that the summit has started we

:13:51.:13:54.

are seeing journalists are not allowed to report freely and

:13:55.:13:58.

fairly. You hear reports of white vans coming along and people

:13:59.:14:00.

disappearing from their homes because they have yet to criticise

:14:01.:14:04.

the regime. We do not know the president is prepared to meet David

:14:05.:14:08.

Cameron. David Cameron says he will raise human rights issues with him,

:14:09.:14:11.

but we do not you will get the opportunity. William Hague is going

:14:12.:14:16.

around the country urging reconciliation amongst the shoreline

:14:17.:14:28.

can -- the Sri Lankans. A lot of people accept it is an issue of

:14:29.:14:33.

human rights in Sri Lanka, but how do you deal with it? This summit is

:14:34.:14:41.

not about human rights. There is business people attending and

:14:42.:14:45.

business people from the UK, a lot of other countries have stayed away.

:14:46.:14:50.

Only three countries of the 53 stayed away. The point I am making

:14:51.:14:59.

is... Three of the 53 countries did not turn up. Constructive engagement

:15:00.:15:05.

is the point I am making. If there are criticisms, is that not a better

:15:06.:15:08.

way to achieve your objectives rather than lecture at the Sri

:15:09.:15:12.

Lankans? Engagement should have been taking place all year. I have been

:15:13.:15:17.

taking place in debates in Parliament called by people who have

:15:18.:15:21.

been critical of the Sri Lankan regime and urging ministers to raise

:15:22.:15:27.

these issues. They have left it until the last moment gods of the

:15:28.:15:33.

public outcry. There was a Channel 4 documentary the public responded to.

:15:34.:15:37.

It is only because of that David Cameron is putting human rights on

:15:38.:15:41.

the agenda at fault. We don't know whether David Cameron will get to

:15:42.:15:45.

meet the president to talk about it. He says he will raise it. We have

:15:46.:15:53.

got to leave it there. Thank you for joining us live from Bristol. Let's

:15:54.:15:59.

go back to our top story, the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan. We are

:16:00.:16:07.

joined by the president of the charity Medicins Sans Frontiere You

:16:08.:16:13.

have sent out teams to those in the centre of the storm's path. What

:16:14.:16:17.

kind of assessment are you getting from your teams? We have been there

:16:18.:16:25.

since last Saturday. It is a very chaotic, difficult situation, as we

:16:26.:16:28.

have all heard on the news. Our teams are having difficulties

:16:29.:16:33.

getting out. We saw that the transportation will be the main

:16:34.:16:37.

issue so we have rented boats and helicopters, small aeroplanes and we

:16:38.:16:41.

are assessing the different areas. Some are around Lete Island. We are

:16:42.:16:49.

afraid for some of the smaller islands. What we have found in some

:16:50.:16:56.

areas, it is not tackled and, the big town, but in the smaller

:16:57.:17:00.

villages, disaster situation, almost everything destroyed, public

:17:01.:17:05.

hospital is down, a private hospital is trying to cope, so we have done

:17:06.:17:11.

consultation today. We are setting up a makeshift hospitals. And we

:17:12.:17:18.

will do mobile clinics by boat. Tell us about the health hazards that

:17:19.:17:23.

exist. Tetanus, for example, there must be a risk of that. We have

:17:24.:17:28.

rotting carcasses of dead animals, spell that out for us. We are almost

:17:29.:17:35.

one week after the disaster. People did not have access to health care,

:17:36.:17:40.

so those who survived, a lot of them will be winded because it was a

:17:41.:17:46.

destructive storm. People have had injuries on their heads. We will see

:17:47.:17:52.

a lot of injuries and fractures that after one week with no sanitation

:17:53.:17:56.

and clean water, will be infected. Infected injuries will already be

:17:57.:18:05.

had. We will have to treat those injuries. These are things that will

:18:06.:18:14.

come up in the coming weeks. And then tetanus, as you say, will be

:18:15.:18:19.

one of the risks. We know the vaccination coverage was not very

:18:20.:18:22.

high in the region so we will have to vaccinate to protect people

:18:23.:18:28.

against tetanus. Often people think they are a health risk, they are not

:18:29.:18:32.

a risk for spreading epidemic per se, if there was no Colorado four,

:18:33.:18:43.

they will not spread it. -- cholera. The problem industry is

:18:44.:18:47.

psychological. People will become fronted by dead bodies. It will

:18:48.:18:52.

start to smell and overall hygiene situation, including no access to

:18:53.:18:58.

clean water, that will be a risk. When people see these full-size

:18:59.:19:02.

obviously the Philippines is accustomed to typhoons but you must

:19:03.:19:06.

be worried about post, take stress disorder for some of those

:19:07.:19:14.

survivors? -- post-traumatic stress. The Philippines people are used to

:19:15.:19:18.

typhoons. They have had previous storms but this one has been so

:19:19.:19:23.

disastrous. Our Philippine colleagues say that people are

:19:24.:19:27.

strong but now they are one way now we see people in the streets and

:19:28.:19:31.

areas where the storm hit and they are desperate. They have lost their

:19:32.:19:37.

houses but not only that, they have lost almost all of the families The

:19:38.:19:45.

people are devastated. So we will send psychological support. We know

:19:46.:19:48.

from other disasters like this, those who survived the storm will

:19:49.:19:52.

survive overall and they will have to cope with the situation. Food,

:19:53.:19:56.

clean water, medical care is extremely important, but we should

:19:57.:20:01.

not underestimate, because people have to build up and they need

:20:02.:20:06.

psychological support. Thank you very much indeed and we wish you and

:20:07.:20:10.

your teams of the best in your efforts to help the people in the

:20:11.:20:24.

Philippines. Thank you. A French court has ruled that a

:20:25.:20:27.

German safety standards company who gave the all clear to defective PIP

:20:28.:20:31.

breast implants should be held liable. More than 400,000 women

:20:32.:20:34.

worldwide were fitted with the implants. But they contained

:20:35.:20:35.

substandard, industrial-grade silicone gel, and 4,000 of them

:20:36.:20:38.

reportedly ruptured. The 1,700 plaintiffs will be paid $4000

:20:39.:20:41.

immediately. They could end up receiving up to ?53,000 each. Our

:20:42.:20:43.

Paris correspondent Christian Fraser has more details.

:20:44.:20:51.

This is a civil case that is running alongside a criminal case. The

:20:52.:20:55.

criminal case in Marseille focuses on the former owner of the company,

:20:56.:20:59.

John Paul mascot and for executives who are on trial for aggravated

:21:00.:21:04.

fraud. Separately that was this civil case which featured the German

:21:05.:21:08.

company that audited what went on at PIP. -- Jean Claude Mas.. They were

:21:09.:21:16.

the company they gave the European safety standards certificate to PIP

:21:17.:21:19.

and they checked on the distribution and training. Ever thing that went

:21:20.:21:22.

on at the factory, it was the plaintiff us case that if they had

:21:23.:21:26.

been there for 17 years, even most cursory check on what was going on

:21:27.:21:29.

there would have alerted them to various problems. There was a man

:21:30.:21:34.

working in quality control who had a diploma for cooking. There was a man

:21:35.:21:38.

who was in the laboratory was a pastry chef. These were not together

:21:39.:21:42.

people who had should have been in of medical products. -- these were

:21:43.:21:46.

not the kind of people. The court has agreed with the 1700 women who

:21:47.:21:53.

brought the case. Clearly there are massive implications for not only

:21:54.:21:57.

the company involved here, but also for the European industry which

:21:58.:21:59.

checks on medical products because if they have got it wrong, surely

:22:00.:22:03.

there will be questions about whether other companies are getting

:22:04.:22:07.

it wrong. I talked to the lawyers for the plaintiff, it is a 150 page

:22:08.:22:13.

report, they said it grants these women $4000 upfront for any surgery

:22:14.:22:17.

they would want to have the PIP implant removed now but an expert

:22:18.:22:20.

panel will look at the compensation as a whole and they will get
