Food distributed to women in Haiti's capital

The UN has begun a large-scale food aid distribution to women in Haiti's capital, nearly three weeks after the deadly earthquake.

The BBC's Karen Allen said nine of the 16 centres were able to hand out food to women without incident.

Women exchanged vouchers for sacks of rice to give to their children and families.
