Philippines hunts for survivors after powerful earthquake


The Search and rescue efforts continued on Monday at a three-story building in the southern Philippines that collapsed in a powerful earthquake that killed at least three people and wounded dozens more.

Disaster response officials said five people were believed to be trapped in the rubble of the Southern Trade Shopping Centre in Padada, a town on the island of Mindanao located about 20km (12 miles) from the epicentre of Sunday’s quake.
