Bumpy road for Haiti quake amputees

Thousands of quake victims without an arm or leg face tough challenges to rebuild lives.

    An estimated 4,000 people in Haiti had an arm or leg amputated after being trapped in the rubble following January's massive earthquake.

    Al Jazeera's Sebastian Walker reports from the capital Port-au-Prince on a whole generation of new amputees who will be needing months, or even years, of rehabilitation as they battle to rebuild their lives.
