Tour of Haiti tent city for earthquake victims


Angry Hatian demonstrators have been met with teargas as they protested at the government's efforts to re-build the country following the January earthqauke.

Thousands of people are still living in squalid, makeshift camps around the capital Port au Prince. The Acra camp is home to around 25,000 people.

It is run by the American Refugee Committee and contains temporary schools, clinics, a cinema and even a cock-fighting ring.

One of the residents, Ulysse Michelet gave BBC News a tour of Acra camp and his makeshift home.
