Haiti president facing tough challenges

Barely four months into office, ex-singer Michel Martelly faces uphill task to improve earthquake-hit nation.

    Michel Martelly, Haiti's new president, is facing an uphill task following the massive earthquake which destroyed much of the country's infrastructure last year.

    Martelly made numerous promises before his term started, but political gridlock and a dire economic situation have stalled progress.
