PORT AU PRINCE – The people of Haiti are today marking the sixth anniversary of the deadly January 12 2010 earthquake which devastated capital city Port au Prince and other parts of the country.

Some estimates put the death toll at more than 300 000, with a similar number injured, and more than a million and a half displaced.

The anniversary is being marked with renewed calls to the international community for increased support for the rebuilding effort as many Haitians remain displaced. (CARICOM)
