O'Brien Returns to Haiti

CNN's Soledad O'Brien returned today to Port au Prince, Haiti to file followup reports on the earthquake recovery.

During her previous visit, she became deeply involved in covering the now-controversial stories of orphaned children who were being taken from the country.

The New York Times reported this week that:

As hundreds of thousands of people displaced by last month’s earthquake put down stakes in the squalid tent camps of this wrecked city, the authorities are struggling to address the worsening problem of human waste. Public health officials warn that waste accumulation is creating conditions for major disease outbreaks, including cholera, which could further stress the ravaged health system.
