Typhoon Xangsane whirled away from Taiwan and closer to southern Japan today, leaving 58 dead and 31 missing in the island's worst flooding in three decades, officials said. The death toll from the storm, which had earlier killed 40 people and left 66 others missing in the Philippines, does not include the casualties from a Singapore Airlines flight that crashed while taking off Tuesday amid wind gusts and driving rain at the Taipei airport.

Thousands of angry Taiwanese demonstrators protesting last month's election results clashed with police while trying to storm barbed-wire barriers protecting President Chen Shui-bian's office Saturday. The violence erupted after more than 100,000 protesters marched in Taipei to demand an independent inquiry into an election-eve assassination attempt on Chen, which opposition supporters suspect was staged to win sympathy votes.

Typhoon Babs brought torrential rain and landslides to Taiwan after killing at least 156 people in the Philippines and leaving hundreds of thousands homeless.
