Medics treated the countless injured in makeshift hospitals as gangrene began to set in, and fresh looting broke out in devastated Port-au-Prince even as some signs of normal life returned. It is difficult to work as before, but were on course to regain control, President Rene Preval said yesterday, seeking to counter charges that the government has been largely absent since the January 12 disaster. Alongside the Haitian plan, French and US rescue workers have begun to clear debris and human waste from around the citys ceremonial square, the Champ de Mars, which has become a giant ad hoc refugee camp. We want to stop living like animals, said Carole Deslouis, who finally received the promise of food and shelter in the square yesterday after days of washing her children with filthy water and begging for rice. US forces are also repairing the main port, hoping to slowly reopen it from today and bring in enough aid to feed people across the country, and brought in a temporary control tower for the countrys overburdened main air port. The 7.0-magnitude quake has killed at least 75,000 and left a million homeless. Haitis government said it would try to relocate an estimated 500,000 left destitute, moving them out of squalid, stinking bivouacs into temporary accommodation outside Port-au-Prince. Rescue teams from around the world are still combing the debris for survivors.
