, Haiti -- A Red Cross official says a school
has collapsed in northern Haiti, killing three children.
Red Cross spokesman Pericles Jean-Baptiste says the children
were in the school when a wall collapsed at about noon Monday in
the city of Cap-Haitien, about 80 miles north of
the country's quake
Officials say the area saw heavy rains and a small earthquake
overnight, though the cause of the collapse is not immediately
The quake was not recorded by the U.S. Geological Survey.
A magnitude-7 quake on Jan. 12 near Port-au-Prince killed
roughly 200,000 people.
Schools reopened last week in the north but they remain closed
in the capital.
