The UN must step in to ensure the U.S. is not occupying Haiti in the wake of a devastating earthquake that may have killed 200,000 people, a French minister has said.
French Cooperation Minister Alain Joyandet spoke as the country descended into anarchy. Aid is only just trickling through the 'bottleneck' at Haiti's airport, while angry Haitians desperate for help are striking out at international agencies - and each other.
Some 10,000 U.S. troops are on the way to try to restore order - but their role is being questioned.
'This is about helping Haiti, not about occupying Haiti,' Joyandet, in Brussels for an EU meeting on Haiti, said on French radio.
