The United Nations says Haiti’s earthquake is the worst disaster it has ever had to deal with.
Aid is now pouring in, with a steady flow of relief getting through the nation’s only airport.
The World Food Programme says it expects to feed a million people. But survivors say help is not happening fast enough as dead bodies lie scattered on the capital’s streets.
Tarek Bazley reports.
Barack Obama, the US president, has recruited two of his predecessors to lead a major fundraising drive for victims of the Haiti earthquake.
In a bid to appeal to all Americans, Obama asked former presidents Bill Clinton and George W Bush to front the campaign. Tom Ackerman reports from Washington.
It is five days since a devastating earthquake struck Haiti, spreading fear and misery across an already fragile nation.
After a relatively slow start, US forces appear to be taking the lead in organising international aid efforts on the ground.
But there is a long way to go. Residents outside the capital complain they have been forgotten.
In rural towns and villages survivors have largely been left to fend for themselves. Al Jazeera’s Sebastian Walker reports from Port Au Prince, the capital.
