Haiti quake widow tells her story

Josiane Jeanpierre speaks of the tragedy that has left her family struggling to survive.

    The January 12 earthquake in Haiti made an estimated 1.5 million people homeless and left much of the Caribbean nation's capital in ruins.

    What was once a private school in Port-au-Prince for wealthy Haitians is now a temporary camp for 15,000 survivors.

    Al Jazeera's Tony Birtley tells the story of a young widow there.
