Haiti PM slams US aid delays

Haiti's PM tells Al Jazeera that US security policy is holding up aid distribution.



    Jean-Max Bellerive, the Haitian prime minister, has told Al Jazeera that he does not understand why so much water and food in storage facilities at the airport is not being distributed.

    In an exclusive interview on Wednesday, Bellerive expressed his frustration with security decisions made by the US military that are hindering the earthquake relief effort.

    "Haitians don't care about the security, they just want the water, food and medicine to get to them ... they don't feel that there is the need for so much security," he said.

    Faultlines presenter Avi Lewis reports.
