A mother has given birth to a baby girl in a church in Tacloban City which has been converted into an evacuation centre. Marilou Casim was surrounded by family and a medical volunteer as her child was delivered. Both are said to be doing well. The baby's father, Reginaldo Casim, waited anxiously and once she was born, pondered what to call the little one.

"I don't know, maybe Yolanda?", Reginaldo Casim said. Typhoon Haiyan is known locally as Yolanda in the Philippines. More than 544,600 people have been displaced by the superstorm and an official estimate says 2,357 people have been killed; a figure which aid workers expect to rise. Report by Ashley Fudge.
