Misery deepens in Haiti as unrest rages and water shortages bite



Thousands in Haiti faced are facing water shortages after days of protest virtually halted distribution, witnesses said. An approaching storm was causing more worry in the Caribbean country on Saturday. Many residents of Haiti’s capital Port-au-Prince have been forced to shelter at home this week as gunfire broke out and burning tires blocked streets during protests over fuel price hikes and crime.
