Haiti PM slams US aid delays

Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive says he does not understand why so much water and food in storage facilities at the airport is not being distributed. Bellerive expressed his frustration with security decisions made by the US military that are hindering the earthquake relief effort. “Haitians don’t care about the security, they just want the water, food and medicine to get to them … they don’t feel that there is the need for so much security,” he said.
