Haiti survivors scavenge for food

Struggling aid efforts leave some earthquake victims fighting to survive.

    Additional police and troops are being sent to Haiti to bolster security amid relief efforts in the wake of last weeks deadly earthquake.

    For many earthquake victims, even six days after the disaster,  the story is still one of frustration as aid is only slowly getting through.

    While at the airport the debate rages over the prioritising of military flights over civilian aid flights, in makeshift relief camps some earthquake victims are going hungry while others are fighting for food.
