Disputes over Haiti aid control

Five days after earthquake struck, complaints persist over aid distribution.

    It is five days since a devastating earthquake struck Haiti spreading fear and misery across an already fragile nation.

    After a relatively slow start, US forces appear to be taking the lead in organising international aid efforts on the ground.

    But there is a long way to go. Residents outside of the capital complain they have been forgotten and in rural towns and villages survivors have largely been left to fend for themselves.
