Logistical delays plague Haiti aid

More than two weeks after the quake, much of the aid is still not reaching the needy.

    Aid worth millions of dollars is being flown into Haiti.

    But more than two weeks after a deadly earthquake struck, much of that aid is still not reaching the people who need it.

    Al Jazeera's Monica Villamizar spent a day with an aid convoy in the Haitian capital, Port-au-Prince, carrying one million food rations. She found herself going round in circles.

    Though more than 100 people were involved and armed personnel accompanied the convoy, no food had been distributed by the end of the day.
