Haiti earthquake: Tensions rise in struggle to get aid to victims

Five days after a powerful earthquake killed at least 2,189 people in Haiti help is trickling in, but struggling people say they need it more quickly.

The poorest country in the Americas is in urgent need of medical, food and sanitation assistance, experts say.

Rescue crews are still digging through rubble in a search for survivors, as the stench of death fills the air.

"We are preparing for a public health disaster," says Nadesha Mijoba of the Haitian Health Foundation.
