    Mass graves are being dug in the southern Philippines for the bodies of hundreds of victims of flash floods and landslides.

    It has been three days since floodwaters swept away parts of Mindanao and some neighbouring islands.

    Many areas remain underwater and bodies are still being found.

    Al Jazeera's Marga Ortigas reports from Cagayan de Oro - where most of those who were killed are from.
