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.

    Al Jazeera's Sebastian Walker reports from the capital, Port-au-Prince.
