A man feeds a fire he set to burn a corpse in downtown Port-au-Prince four days after the earthquake. Residents have started to take action on their own because bodies haven't been picked up and the stench is overwhelming. The deceased was a street vendor who was killed when a cement block fell on her, according to those who were around her.
