  1. Mudslide kills four children

    Haiti: A mudslide partially destroyed a school in Cap-Haitien on Monday, killing at least four children and wounding two others.

    A civil protection official said that the accident had been caused by four days of heavy rain.

    Officials warn that the rainy season threatens to worsen the current situation in camps where an estimated 1.2 million people made homeless by last month’s earthquake still reside.

  2. Firm exploits quake disaster

    United States: Authorities said 11 people exploited the catastrophic 2010 earthquake in Haiti to illegally sell stock in a US company.

    The Securities and Exchange Commission said on Wednesday that the company netted about $1 million (£617,000) in profits.

    Ringleader Kevin Sepe and others promoted the stock of Recycle Tech, a company they touted was committed to building 50 container homes in Haiti after the quake. But the SEC says that the company never had money to do such work.
