UN chief visits Haiti camp


UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has visited Haiti to witness the progress in aid distribution.

Mr Ban toured a makeshift camp where more than 40,000 people are living under tarpaulins or tents. During his visit he met with actors Sean Penn and Maria Bello of the Jenkins-Penn Haiti Relief Organization.

It is Mr Ban's second visit since the devastating quake, which killed more than 200,000 people. Hundreds of thousands of people remain in urgent need.
