Haiti Mourns Quake Dead

Adjust font size:

The official death toll in Haiti has risen to 120-thousand, and the number is still growing. Mourners are gathering around the capital Port-au-Prince to remember the dead.

On Saturday, hundreds of worshippers, priests and nuns paid respect to the archbishop and others killed in the Notre Dame Cathedral.

Survivors are still camped out in around 300 makeshift camps in the Haitian capital.

Aid workers have faced enormous challenges to get food and water to the city cluttered with rubble, and overflowing with homeless and injured people.

World Food Program officials now say aid has reached over two thirds of the survivor camps.
