Haiti's 'curse of corruption'

Fake food coupons latest example of corruption in quake-hit nation.

    Corruption was a major problem in Haiti even before the massive earthquake that struck the country nearly a month ago, killing some 200,000 people.

    Now reports have emerged that counterfeiters are producing fake food coupons, coming on the heels of revelations that a thriving black market of aid supplies has sprung up.
