Storm rips through Haiti tent city for homeless

A storm has ripped through tents at a Haiti relocation camp for people left homeless by the January earthquake.

United Nations camp manager Richard Pool said hurricane-force winds had destroyed tents and a school.

"It wasn't a typical hurricane, you couldn't track it. It wasn't something that took place over a period of days, it came like that, and it was over in about 15 minutes," he added.
