At least 22 people have been killed and tens of thousands of others forced out of their homes since Typhoon Koppu battered the Philippines.

The victims of the storm lost their lives in floods, landslides and boat accidents, as well as by flying debris, authorities said Tuesday.

The government has deployed thousands of troops to assist residents trapped on rooftops in flooded areas.
