As the world readies supplies from food to medicine, the situation deteriorates by the hour in Haiti as the extent of the damage is overwhelming and the stretched UN peacekeeping force tries to clear the path for aid to reach victims.
With an estimated 100,000 or more killed and potentially 3 million in desperate need of emergency supplies, the international community is mounting one of the most complicated aid efforts in history.
