Deaths from Philippine 7.2 magnitude earthquake reaches 144-Historic church in Cebu lost its bell tower-video

The death toll from an earthquake in the Philippines rose to 144 on Wednesday as rescuers dug through the rubble of collapsed buildings.
Nearly 3 million people were affected by the 7.2 magnitude quake on Tuesday, which caused landslides and widespread damage to infrastructure in the tourist destinations of Bohol Island and the nearby Cebu islands.
The number of injured rose to almost 300, with at least 23 people missing.
Historic churches dating from the Spanish colonial period suffered the most. Among them was the country's oldest, the 16th-century Basilica of the Holy Child in Cebu, which lost its bell tower.
