Haiti earthquake: 2,000 dead, 10,000 missing

by Kunle Awosiyan

At least one thousand, nine hundred and forty one people are confirmed dead in Haiti after Saturday’s powerful 7.2-magnitude earthquake that hit the country

This a rise of more than 500 on the previous official figure

Report says nearly ten thousand people have been injured, and many are still missing

Some hospitals were left overwhelmed and in need of supplies, as medics struggle to treat the injured.

Rescue work has been hampered by heavy rains brought this week by ‘Tropical Storm Grace’ to the Caribbean nation.
