BBC News - Haiti quake: Death toll may be 200,000, US general says
I think I will be sending more money soon. I had a feeling that 50,000 was an underestimation of deaths.
This approaches the death count of the Tsunami, in a nation of only 10,000,000 people. Truly a horrific calamity.
he leading US general in Haiti has said it is a "reasonable assumption" that up to 200,000 people may have died in last Tuesday's earthquake.
Lt Gen Ken Keen said the disaster was of "epic proportions", but it was "too early to know" the full human cost.
Rescuers pulled more people alive from the rubble at the weekend, but at least 70,000 people have already had burials.
