Image of Asia: Working on the Tacloban waterfront

In this photo by Aaron Favila, a man uses a mallet to extract steel bars from a concrete post so he can sell the steel to a junkshop. The seafront location in Tacloban city, central Philippines, is in front of an oil plant and near a ship that washed ashore and smashed into houses during Typhoon Haiyan last November. The region is still trying to recover from the devastation wrought by one of the strongest typhoons to make landfall, killing at least 6,300 people and displacing more than 4 million.
