Problems hold up Haiti aid

Desperate survivors struggle amid the destruction and death.

    Governments and international organisations are trying to mobilise efforts to help the survivors of Haiti's devastating 7.0-magnitude earthquake.

    But medical assistance and other kinds of aid have yet to reach many of those who escaped the ruins of Tuesday's catastrophe.

    The setbacks have made survivors increasingly desperate and angry as bottlenecks and infrastructure damage delay relief efforts.

    Al Jazeera's Teresa Bo reports from the capital Port-au-Prince where people are trying to make the best out of what little they have to survive.
