Residents and relatives await further news at a staging area near the landslide in Itogon, in the northern Philippines, on Monday, Sept. 17, 2018. Emergency workers recovered 43 bodies from the muddied wreckage of a gold miners’ bunkhouse after Typhoon Mangkhut set off a landslide, burying the remote northern town of Itogon in a river of debris and potentially doubling the country’s death toll, officials said on Monday.
