Los Angeles fights homelessness

Task force set up by community leaders aims to end old problem worsened by economic crisis.

    As financial problems continue to plague the US, the Californian city of  Los Angeles has become the country's homeless capital.  

    Almost 50,000 people sleep on the streets each night throughout the city.  

    But a task force of business and community leaders say they have a new plan that aims to end Los Angeles' chronic homelessness in just five years.
