    Haiti continues to suffer the effects of riots triggered by soaring food prices and four devastating storms last year.

    But Clinton reminded a group of university students that Haiti was once "the richest island in all of the Caribbean ... because of the natural resources, because of what God had put into the land".

    "It can be again, because of the resources in your mind and in your heart," he said.
