Construction slow on Haiti's 'tented villages'

More than two weeks after the earthquake in Haiti, there are still no signs of the tented villages the government there has been promising.

At least one million people were left homeless by the quake, which flattened most of the capital, Port-au-Prince.

Only aid workers have so far succeeded in the construction of a ''tented village'' for 3,000 refugees.

Rupert Wingfield-Hayes reports from Haiti.
