Deadline for US fund's aid to Haiti runs out

Despite many earthquake victims still needing help, legal period for Clinton Bush Fund to act is now over.

    Haiti is still recovering from the devastating earthquake in 2010, which left tens of thousands dead and millions homeless.

    Following the earthquake, Barack Obama, the US president, called his two predecessors, asking them to raise money and see that it was spent directly helping Haitians recover and rebuild their lives.

    The Clinton Bush Fund raised more than $50m but under US law it had just under three years to do its work.

    With many people still in need of help, that time is now over.
