Posted February. 27, 2006 03:00,   


On February 25, eight days after a landslide hit a village on Leyte Island in the Philippines, survivors offer their condolences by presenting flowers to the victims’ graves. So far, a total of 139 people have been confirmed dead, and thousands are still missing. Rescue teams from around the world are preparing to withdraw from the region as the hope of finding more survivors ends.
