Rescuers who heard faint but anguished cries of "Help us!" pulled two survivors from the twisted wreckage of a luxury hotel on Friday, 11 days after it collapsed in an earthquake that devastated this once-picturesque mountain resort. The pair, a man and a woman, survived amid the plaster, mangled steel and wood beams and sandwiched concrete slabs of the 12-story Hyatt Terraces Hotel, one of 28 buildings in Baguio flattened by the 7.7 temblor that rocked the Philippines on July 16.

Authorities filed criminal charges against the owner of a budget hotel that caught fire over the weekend, killing 73 people and injuring 51. An official report said the fire exits were padlocked or obstructed. Supt. Danilo Cabrera of the Bureau of Fire Prevention charged William Genato with reckless endangerment resulting in multiple deaths and injuries in connection with the blaze in Quezon City, which was sparked by a short circuit. Police have been unable to find Genato, but authorities said he had contacted them and told them that he would surrender as soon as charges were filed.

An American real estate executive was about to explain Tuesday how he had become one of the 400 or so "guests" of Philippine rebels at a swank Manila hotel when sniper fire crashed through a lobby window. "Lie down! Lie down!" a rebel soldier shouted. The advice was hardly necessary. Everyone at the besieged hotel, the Inter-Continental, seemed to know the drill. Almost immediately, they were flat on the carpet, hands covering their heads.
