About 100 people in the Philippines are feared dead as a result of Typhoon Mangkhut, including about 50 people trapped in a bunkhouse buried in a landslide in a northern province, said officials yesterday.

Mangkhut lashed the northern Philippines with maximum winds of 205km/* and gusts of up to 285km/* .

It triggered floods and knocked out electricity in seven provinces, affecting more than four million.

It weakened as it exited the country on Saturday evening, heading towards southern China.
