CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — The United Nations humanitarian chief says she is investigating reports that aid has yet to reach remote parts of the Philippines a month after a devastating typhoon.

Valerie Amos is in Australia for aid talks with the government. She said Monday she is still hearing "worrying reports in the media ... where people said they hadn't received any aid as yet."

Typhoon Haiyan and its tsunami-like storm surge plowed through coastal areas of the Philippines on Nov. 8, leaving over 5,700 dead.
