Philippine disaster officials say the bodies of four Europeans and their Filipino guide who were killed by rocks in a volcanic eruption early this week have been brought down from Mount Mayon.
Albay provincial disaster officer Jukes Nunez says soldiers in a helicopter on Thursday carried the body of Filipino Jerome Berin, followed by the remains of the four Europeans.
A tour company has identified the three Germans as Joanne Edosa, Roland Tietze and Jurian Stelter.
Stelter's Navarran girlfriend, Sara Frances Nicolay, also died, her cousin Juan Felix Castillo told reporters in her hometown of Peralta, Navarre.
A Thai man with a broken arm and burns is the last remaining casualty still waiting to be evacuated.
Twenty-one climbers and guides were on Mayon when it erupted Tuesday. Nine were injured.
