Haitians' desperate aid plight

Hundreds of thousands of Haitians are still waiting for food and water from the international relief operation that started after the earthquake twelve days ago.

Many have been helped but the response has been criticised for being haphazard and ill planned and there are worries about the long term commitment by world leaders to help Haiti. A donors conference opens in Montreal today, but often what is pledged at conferences is not delivered.

Correspondent Adam Mynott reports from Leogane, the epicentre of the quake where people's immediate needs are for the basics, food and water.
