Officials in Tacloban City begin filling a mass grave site with the bodies of people who died during super Typhoon Haiyan. More than 100 bodies were placed in the grave Thursday, collected from around the city by sanitation workers, or brought to the site by family members. Officials say it may take days or weeks to fill the grave before it's covered with soil. A Catholic mass will be held once the site is filled.
