Palau asking for help in Typhoon Haiyan recovery

Updated 19 December 2013, 20:22 AEDT

The president of Palau says they're gradually recovering from Typhoon Haiyan, but more international support is needed to meet immediate and long-term needs.

Tommy Remengesau junior says most of the island of Kyangel has been cleaned up and some structures have been rebuilt, after it was totally devastated by the typhoon. But he says power is still out, water is contaminated, communication is limited, and Japan and Taiwan are the only nations to provide significant assistance.

Presenter: Tom Maddocks.
