    The death toll from the Philippines' strongest typhoon of 2012 has risen to at least 230.

    Officials fear hundreds more bodies will be found as the army and rescuers reach the worst hit villages.

    One of the areas most devastated by Typhoon Bopha was the Compostela Valley.

    Up to 80 percent of the plantations here have been destroyed, at an estimated cost of 75 million euros.
