The earthquake that devastated the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince on 13 January also affected many outlying towns - the extent of which is only being discovered days after the disaster.

Analysis and reports from international agencies have helped provide a picture of how badly hit other areas were.

The epicentre of the magnitude 7 quake was south west of Port-au-Prince and large towns in that region, such as Leogane, Gressier and Carrefour suffered large scale destruction, with up to 90% of buildings destroyed in some places.

In Leogane, between 5,000 and 10,000 people were killed.

Smaller towns in the area also suffered.

In Jacmel, on the southern coast, more than 3,000 people were reported to have been killed or injured and 60% of buildings damaged or destroyed.
