Haiti quake survivors have nowhere to go

Thousands of displaced people living in temporary tent houses now face eviction.

    Almost three years after a powerful earthquake devastated Haiti, a third of a million population became homeless.

    At least 360,000 people still live in camps all around the capital city Port-au-Prince, but many of them were put up on private land and now some owners want the people gone.

    At least 60,000 people have already been evicted since July 2010, and the British charity Oxfam has said evictions are on the rise and those displaced have nowhere else to go.
