Topics - The death toll is mounting in the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan tore across the country on Friday. Among the worst hit areas is eastern Leyte island and the city of Tacloban where the devastation resembles the aftermath of a tsunami. The head of Britain's Armed Forces says there should be no calls for clemency for a Royal Marine convicted of murdering a Taliban captive because he committed a 'heinous' crime. "Murder is murder" says General Sir Nick Houghton and pleading for clemency would "erode the moral ascendancy over our enemies".
