Anderson, along with CNN reporters Andrew Stevens, Paula Hancocks, and Nick Paton Walsh have been covering the devastation in Tacloban. Six days after Typhoon Haiyan hit, they discuss the relief effort, the Philippine government's response to the disaster, and the humanitarian crisis that is still unfolding.
Alfred Romualdez is the mayor of Tacloban. Residents call him "The Ghost" because they believed he died in Typhoon Haiyan, and he nearly did. There is little left standing in his city. CNN's Andrew Stevens spoke to Mayor Romualdez about the growing humanitarian crisis in Tacloban and how close he came to being swept away by the storm surge.

Bombs, gunfire, chaos, carnage. Mumbai, popular with Americans and the commercial capital of India, erupted in a coordinated terror attack.
It began around 10:00 p.m. local time, armed with grenades, automatic weapons and explosives, an unknown number of extremists killed scores including the city's anti-terrorism chief and wounded hundreds.
At least ten sites were targeted including two luxury hotels, cafes, a hospital for women and children, a movie theater, and a train station. At the historic Taj Mahal hotel where a large plume of smoke rose hours after the attacks began, witnesses say gunmen were looking for U.S. and British citizens. An untold number of people have been taken hostage.
The army has moved into the hotel and across the city. Several terrorists have been killed or arrested. Others remain on the loose.
Both President Bush and President-Elect Barack Obama issued statements, each strongly condemning the attack. Who's behind this? Local reports say a group named the Deccan Mujahedeen claimed responsibility. Some officials say it bears all the hall marks of Al Qaeda. Mumbai is the mecca for western business men and women, many from America. It's believed thousands of U.S. citizens own a city that is now under siege.
