Earthquake in Haiti five days

The security situation in Haiti's capital Port-au-Prince, where Tuesday's devastating earthquake, continues to deteriorate. Frequent cases of looting, robbery, fire and chaos prevented rescuers to carry out the work and distribute humanitarian and medical aid. Authorities were not counted 4,000 prisoners from the central prison of the city, destroyed by an earthquake.

The UN called the earthquake in Haiti, "the worst disaster", which had to deal with the organization, because of the complete incapacity of the local administration and the lack of any infrastructure.
