Manila, Philippines:  Landslides triggered by Tropical Storm Kai-Tak have killed 26 people in the central Philippine island of Biliran, authorities said Sunday, a day after the storm pounded the east of the archipelago nation.

"There is a total of 26 people dead from landslides in four towns of Biliran. We have recovered the bodies," Sofronio Dacillo, Biliran provincial disaster risk reduction and management officer, told AFP.

Gerardo Espina, governor of the island province east of the much larger island of Leyte, gave the same figure for deaths in an interview on ABS-CBN television.
