    International efforts to help Haiti recover are still gaining pace as the World Food Programme distributes about 680 tonnes of food each day. But aid agencies believe that 10 per cent of the donations are being sold on the black markets in Haiti – including donated second-hand clothes and aid items meant to be distributed for free. As a result, food prices, including those of rice, have doubled. Indeed, the economic situation is so difficult that a lot of donations are not reaching their destinations. Al Jazeera’s Monica Villamizar reports from Port-au-Prince.

  1. Any chance it will be viewable afterwards? Unfortunately no way I can watch it then.  

  2. Was scheduled for this tele-conference, but could not make it — it will be written up, however, according to an e-mail I received.  The response for this tele-conference, apparently, was overwhelming.

    if you read the first story in the Afternoon Edition, we have been more than a little busy. Those of us who are leaving here this weekend are chuckling that this is our “fair well” send off party.

    I will try to post the links to the teleconference replay in  the body of the diary.  

  3. I’ll watch this when I get home tonight.
