    More Dead Bodies Unrecovered


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Residents of Leyte, Philippines pointed rvmitra to the location of a dead body covered by debris. He was shocked to learn that two weeks later after the Typhoon hit Leyte, there are still dead bodies in the area. He says there were no government agencies or other organizations around.
    "Even if the stench is unbearable, I still had to take that photo because I wanted the world to know that bodies are still out there and help is needed to recover them," he says.
    He says it's very disturbing to see all the rubble and debris in the area. "The atmosphere is very gloomy. It's still raining and some roads are still not passable," he says.
