Haiti to remove 'squatters'

Despite large NGO presence, millions of Haitians remain homeless and could be removed from capital.

    With around 10,000 international groups who all say they are doing what they can to help rebuild the country following January's deadly 7.0 magnitude earthquake, Haiti has become known by some as the "Republic of NGOs".

    More than a million Haitians were left homeless, and efforts to relocate many of them have proved challenging.

    Now the government - which itself suffered heavy losses - is beginning to evict what some are calling squatters. But many say they have nowhere to go.
