In Haiti Rescue Efforts Picking Up Pace...
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti Despite dimming odds, rescue workers pulled more people alive from the rubble including a 7-year-old girl who survived more than four days eating dried fruit rolls in the supermarket that collapsed around her as water and emergency aid deliveries improved on Sunday, though not nearly enough to meet Haitis desperate need.

Ban Ki-moon, the United Nations secretary general, arrived to offer a promise of improvement from his organization, which was itself badly hit by the quake but was still heavily criticized for the slow pace of the emergency response.

I am here with a message of hope that help is on the way, Mr. Ban told a crowd of Haitians in front of the severely damaged National Palace.

On the fifth day after the earthquake, there were signs of improvement, possibly even hope that the worst was passing. Traffic at the airport continued to increase, and there were 27 rescue teams on the ground, with 1,500 people searching for survivors.
