Rebuilding begins in Haiti

Some Haitians begin reconstructing their devastated homes in face of tent shortages.



    Hundreds of thousands of Haitians made homeless by January's earthquake are still waiting for temporary shelters.

    Only a few thousand tents have been distributed so far, according to the International Organisation for Migration.

    But some Haitians, tired of waiting, are taking matters into their own hands.

    Al Jazeera's Gabriel Elizondo reports on one man, Francoise Antoine, who has decided to begin work on replacing his destroyed home.
