We explore Leipzig with Grace del Rosario from Manila, capital of the Philippines, stopping for a look at St. Thomas Church, the Auerbachs Keller and the Baumwollspinnerei modern art gallery.
Leipzig was first mentioned 1,000 years ago. Now a new exhibition at the Museum of Local History shows what historians and archaeologists know about the beginnings of the city.
Authorities in the Philippines say charges will be laid over the deaths of more than 70 people in a Manila footwear factory. Health and safety standards in the country are again under the microscope.
Dozens have died after a fire broke out in a beach sandal factory close to Manila. None of the nearly 65 workers stranded in the building managed to escape.
More than 2,000 people have left their homes to escape a powerful storm expected to slam into the northeastern Philippines in the coming hours. Authorities have warned of flash flooding, storm surges and landslides.
