The Chinese government has pledged to give only US$200,000 to the Philippines in the wake of the devastating typhoon Haiyan, Reuters reported. US$100,000 will come directly from Beijing and the Chinese Red Cross will give another US$100,000. Japan has offered US$10 million in aid and is sending in an emergency relief team while Australia has donated US$9.6 million. Super Typhoon Haiyan tore through the central Philippines on Friday and flattened the northeastern city of Tacloban, where officials fear 10,000 people died.
