MANILA, Philippines — Typhoon “Mina” (International codename: Nanmadol) weakened slightly as it headed out of the Philippines, where 12 people were killed in its deadly onslaught across North Luzon last weekend, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said Monday.
