Anger Rising in Haiti
Thousands of Haitians spent a third night on the streets. Bodies are piled everywhere. An estimated 50-thousand people have died. Thousands are still trapped in the rubble. UN Peacekeepers says survivors are becoming increasingly angry that aid has not reached them.
Meanwhile, aid workers are gathering on the border with Dominican Republic. They are waiting to get into the country to help. The aid effort is being hampered by damaged infrastructure. Almost no help has reached quake ravaged communities outside the capital Port au Prince.
The CBC has set up a web site to try to help with the search for loved ones. Photos can be uploaded and information can be posted. Check out the site here.
