There's growing unrest in Haiti. Anderson will be reporting live from Haiti tonight to bring you the latest on the crisis.
Today Anderson saw first-hand the brutality on the streets of Port-au-Prince, as several hundred Haitians broke into a store and looted items.
"They were armed with sticks, they armed with two-by-fours, with nails hammered into them. There were young men with large knives, with screwdrivers, whatever they could grab, and they began to fight amongst themselves," Anderson reported earlier today on CNN.
"One person would steal a sack of candles or whatever else they were able to take from the store. A group of four or five young men would descend on him in a gang and start beating him. We saw one young man being whipped by a belt that caused bloody - a large amount of blood to come from his arm," he added.
A little boy ended up getting caught in the middle of the fight outside the store. Anderson quickly took action to help the boy.
Adding to the frenzy was the gunfire from Haitian police officers, who were firing their pistols into the air to disperse the crowd. The officers were hired by an American businessman who owns two stores in the area. They got the job to keep the stores free of looters.
We'll also update you on the medical crisis. 360 M.D. Sanjay Gupta, neurosurgeon, was called into action by the U.S. military. Dr. Gupta led the surgery of a 12-year-old Haitian girl rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard. He'll update us on the girl's condition.
Meanwhile, American doctors at a medical facility in Port-au-Prince are asking why they don't have the equipment they need to set up a field hospital, but Israeli doctors do, even though they came from half-way across the world.
"'It's a frustrating thing I can't explain," said Dr. Jennifer Furin of Harvard Medical School, who is helping out in Haiti.
"Makes you almost embarrassed to be an American," said another doctor.
Dr. Gupta is looking into the shortage of medical equipment from the U.S. What's the delay? We're keeping them honest.
There's also the shortage of food and water. The U.S. Air Force conducted its first air drop of supplies into Haiti today, six days after the quake hit. An Air Force C-17 from Polk Air Force Base, North Carolina dropped 55,000 pounds of bottled water and food. We'll show you the photos of the special operation.
