To summarize: Gunshots and tear gas fired into crowds, Danish UN worker rescued after 5 days, report on patients urgently needing food and water in a hospice 1 mile away from the airport. Also, a reporter on the ground explains the security concerns and why Oxfam can't deliver 25 to 30,000 liters of clean water it has due to logistical problems.

Another recent BBC report here with video footage of what's going on, including huge queues for fuel, Haitians looking for work and some amazing rescues: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7h8CGGkfGLI

Several more BBC reports from Haiti here: http://www.youtube.com/user/RuniToconillo#g/c/F52812FCC...
