Emergency teams in the Philippines on Monday continued to search a collapsed building for survivors after a strong earthquake killed three people and trapped several others. The structure had housed a supermarket in a northern Philippine province, where an international airport terminal was closed due to damage, officials said. Mayor Condralito dela Cruz of Porac town in Pampanga province, north of Manila, said rescuers pulled two survivors from the collapsed building, where other trapped people could be heard screaming for help as rescuers struggled to save them. An Associated Press photographer saw a third survivor and the body of a woman being extricated by rescuers from the rubble late on Monday. The rescue work picked up pace after four cranes arrived at the scene, where Red Cross volunteers, police and soldiers helped out. A child was one of two dead people pulled out from the rubble earlier in the day. The leg of one of the two survivors had to be amputated to extricate him, Porac Councilor Maynard Lapid said, adding that at least eight trapped people could be heard pleading for help at one point. At least 31 people remained unaccounted for at the collapsed Chuzon supermarket, based on a rough accounting of its employees, although some could have been elsewhere when the earthquake struck, Lapid said. The four-story building crashed down when the 6.1 magnitude quake shook Pampanga as well as several other provinces and the capital, Manila, on the main northern island of Luzon.

In the Philippine capital, street vendors weave through tailbacks of traffic selling their wares. From basketballs to bonsai trees, snacks to phone chargers, there isn't much you can't buy from the comfort of your car. Manila's notorious congestion has become a way for people to make a meagre living, essentially turning the city's highways into a drive-through shopping centre. For Maria Eloisa Bantique, weaving through the queues of cars belching exhaust fumes to find a driver keen on buying knick-knacks is a necessary means of making ends meet. The mother of seven is one of many street vendors turning what is otherwise a drain on the country's economy into their main source of income. "I'm here in the middle of traffic because it's my family and children's livelihood. I am only a simple vendor but I am not ashamed of being a vendor," she said, while holding a collection of feather dusters and a Mickey Mouse-themed car window sunshade. "Some people don't have the time to go to malls, that's why – maybe because they're so busy with their work – when they see us, they buy the things they need from us." Metro Manila, a sprawl of 16 cities fused together by outdated infrastructure, is creaking under the weight of millions of vehicles, owing largely to economic growth of more than 6 per cent a year since 2012. Urban rail coverage is limited and trains are prone to breakdowns. Street vendors are technically not allowed to be on the main highways, but traffic police tend to turn a blind eye. Some residents of the capital complain that the vendors contribute to the slow-moving traffic, but they themselves disagree. "For us, we don't think we're obstructing anyone because when we know it's time to move, we all walk to the side. Why would we still be out there when it's time to move? We could die in the middle of traffic," said Bantique. Street vendors, selling anything from car accessories to snacks, basketballs, and even bonsai trees, have become an integral part of the ...
