Philippines typhoon death toll at 4,460: U.N., citing government

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - The United Nations, citing Philippines government figures, on Thursday put the latest death toll from powerful Typhoon Haiyan at 4,460 - almost double the last official number given, but still less than the 10,000 estimated by local authorities.
