A typhoon which battered southern and central Vietnam has left at least 27 people dead, and more than 20 missing.

 
Typhoon Damrey made landfall on Saturday, with winds of up to 90 km/h.


More than 40,000 homes have been damaged, people have been evacuated and there have been widespread power cuts.


The worst affected area was the city of Nha Trang - about 500km (310 miles) south of the coastal city of Da Nang where world leaders will be attending an Apec summit later this week.
