AP PHOTOS: Philippines faces typhoon destruction

The death toll from Typhoon Haiyan stands at more than 900, but authorities fear it could climb to 10,000 or more.

At least 9.7 million people in 41 Philippine provinces were affected by the disaster, with tens of thousands of houses wiped away, decomposing bodies under twisted rubble, and survivors pleading for food, water and medicine.

Here's a gallery of images from the typhoon's aftermath.
