In Pictures: Survivors of Typhoon Haiyan attempt to leave Tacloban

Evacuation flights from the devastated city are scarce, meaning that tensions are rising.

AFTER THE CITY of Tacloban was devastated by Typhoon Haiyan, the relief efforts have begun.

For many, the priority is getting out of the city, where up to 10,000 people are estimated to have died.

But with spaces on evacuation planes limited, survivors are queuing through the night and tensions are mounting.

The US, Britain and Japan have all deployed military aid to the region, with Japan pledging $10 million in support.
