Philippines President Benigno Aquino says the death toll from Friday's typhoon may be lower than first thought.

 

In an interview with CNN, he said the number of 10,000 killed was "too high" and the figure was more likely up to 2,500.

 

The UN says more than 11 million people are believed to have been affected and some 673,000 displaced.

 

The relief operation is being stepped up, but many are still without aid.
