Haiti's displaced face eviction crisis

Rights group says tens of thousands have been forced out of tent cities by land owners and officials.

    More than three years after a devastating earthquake hit Haiti, tens of thousands of people displaced by the disaster are facing a new crisis.

    Amnesty International says 30,000 residents of tent cities in the country's capital have been forced out of the camps by both private owners who want their land back and city officials trying to clear public spaces. Another 20,000 families face eviction.

    The rights group says the evictions are a violation of human rights and that the government is doing little to stop them.
