Haitians commemorate victims of devastating quake

Four years ago, a catastrophic 7.0 earthquake shook Haiti to its core. Today, Haitians pay tribute to over 300,000 lives lost. Small ceremonies were held in various parts of the country. Haitian President Michel Martelly laid a wreath at the mass grave site. In Port-au-Prince's tent city, song and dance rang out. Hundreds of thousands still remain in tent cities like this one. And for people that live here, the lack of government response is taking its toll. (SOUNDBITE) (French) TENT CAMP PRESIDENT RONALD MOUSSIGNAC SAYING: "The tents give us sinus diseases, rashes on our bodies, blindness. Since we have been here since February of 2010, the government has come here only once. They gave us water and toilets. Ever since then they haven't say a word to us." The international aid community has been criticized for being too slow in developing Haiti - one of the world's poorest countries.
