UN confronts 'worst ever disaster'

Though aid starts pouring in, quake survivors say they are not getting quick help.

    The United Nations says Haiti's quake is the worst disaster it has ever confronted.

    Aid is now being distributed, with a steady flow of relief pouring into the nation's sole airport.

    The World Food Programme says it expects to be feeding a million people.

    But survivors say help is not happening fast enough as thousands of bodies rot around the capital.
