This is the latest news story from the Canadian newspaper, the National Post, written by Andrew Mayeda:
"PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti -- United Nations aid workers fanned across the Haitian capital on Sunday to set up permanent distribution sites they hope will smooth the flow of food to the hundreds of thousands living in ramshackle tent camps.
The UN World Food Program plans to establish 16 fixed distributions around the capital in the next few days. By midday Sunday, they had set up nine such locations, with no major incidents of violence reported.
In the early days after the disaster, food distributions sometimes devolved into near riots as people jostled in massive lineups. UN officials hope to impose some order by delivering food from the same locations over the next two weeks, a system they hope will calm the crowds and get more aid to the needy.
