Philippine officials say the bodies of 13 more drowning victims have been recovered, raising the death toll from a typhoon that left the country days ago to 39.
Office of Civil Defense Administrator Benito Ramos says two bodies were retrieved Friday from Manila Bay. Eleven others were recovered late Thursday from various parts of the country. Several of the dead were children, including a 6-month old baby.
Typhoon Saola dumped torrents of rain as it swept past the Philippines earlier this week. It moved Wednesday to Taiwan, where it left at least five people dead and two others missing.
It then weakened to a tropical storm and headed westward to China, where it made landfall around noon Friday.
