Mass funeral held for Haiti dead

Mourners honour thousands of earthquake victims buried in unmarked graves.

    In the days following Haiti's devastating earthquake, tens of thousands of people were buried in mass graves just to clear the streets.

    Weeks after the disaster, dozens of Haitians gathered at one such site, north of the capital, to honour the dead.
