At least 100 people have been rescued, and two confirmed dead, after a ferry sank in bad weather in the central Philippines.

However, the Maharlika II only had 84 people listed as being on board, so authorities cannot say how many more may be missing.

The ferry left Liloan port in Southern Leyte province and an order to abandon ship was given at 13:20 GMT.

The Philippines has a poor record for maritime safety.
