PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) - More than two days after the Haiti earthquake, the bodies of some of the dead are still in the streets of the capital, often covered by a white cloth.
In other cases, people are dragging dust-covered bodies along the road toward the morgue. there, people have been hunting for relatives among the victims, just a few feet from where badly injured victims have waited for treatment by a doctor from the neighboring hospital.
And some victims are being buried by family members along the road, or in nearby hills.
It's been mostly calm in the Haitian capital, which is often a chaotic place.
There's been widespread looting of collapsed buildings, but an American Red Cross official points out that there's no other way to get provisions.
And he says undamaged shops have mostly been left alone.
Still, some aid groups are expressing concern about security.
An Oxfam spokesman says it's "dangerous at night" in the capital,
with widespread looting.
