Photo gallery: Haiti – one week later


One week ago today, the 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck Haiti. The massive effort to distribute aid continues, even amid reports of looting and questions about who is in charge. Take a look at this photo gallery of the continued devastation.

The aftermath of the earthquake that hit Haiti last week in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

    The best picture is the one with the soldier and the children with their dinner plates; its a relief to see that the food aid at least is there and being distributed so people can eat; I'm sure by the time it got to them they really needed it. Thanks for showing us these pictures; they do show some progress and that is good to see.

    Anderson Cooper is great in what de does, really, he is amazing, and he is one of the reasons why CNN is the greatest news channel in the US.
    Also this week's coverage about Haiti has brought the world's attention to this battered country. Thanks Anderson.

    It's great to finally see things movin., however, it's a shame that it's taken an entire week to finally set-up response. How many people have died as a result of the delays? We will never know. Was the delay due lack of leadership in Haiti or poor logistical management at the airport? Who's going to ask the tough questions and will we ever know the real answer.

    Am very proud of news coverage by team from CNN.

    I pray to God that we never experience another catostrophic incident like this, but I also pray that we put in our leadership a individual that is able plan for catostrophic situations and also execute the plan for quicker actions when needed ., and that that individuals learns to differentiate between needs and fears of security. I when our fire fighters and other heroes respond to emergency the last concern they have in their minds is security.
    I also plead and hope we respond to individuals that r being rescued with the upmost urgentcy., to do otherwise is to show the world that the search and rescue mission was a waste of time.
    Again thank you for your great coverage.

    Why are the UN soldiers wearing masks? Even if the smell is strong its demoralizing to see them wearing face masks when even media and doctors are not. The message being sent doesn't appear to be worth the risk they're trying to minimize.

    Great photos. Coverage is hard to watch. However, I feel I will have a part in the recovery effort in Haiti somewhere along the way. Still in school, studying sociolgy and psychology, humanity is with true purpose. I enjoy your reporting and notice your compassion.
    Thank you,

    Thanks for the great work and tireless effort.

    What I liked best was that at 11pm on Monday, just 6 hours after the quake, you knew in mid-show that it was time to stand up, walk out, and go to the plane. CNN and the world benefited from your being on-the-ground, camera ready in the streets, a day or two ahead of the other networks.
