Locals walk among dead bodies outside the morgue in Port-au-Prince following the devastating earthquake that rocked Haiti on January 12. Desperate Haitians await a global effort to find and treat survivors from the quake that left streets strewn with corpses. The death toll that may top 100,000. Hundreds of thousands of homeless, injured and traumatized victims spent a second night on the streets and sidewalks, transforming Port-au-Prince into a gigantic and under-equipped refugee camp.
