Haiti has already buried 7,000 quake dead - president

PORT-AU-PRINCE (Reuters) - Some 7,000 victims killed in Tuesday’s earthquake in Haiti have already been buried, Haitian President Rene Preval said on Thursday.

“We have already buried 7,000 in a mass grave,” Preval told reporters at the airport while accompanying Dominican Republic President Leonel Fernandez, the first foreign head of state to visit Haiti after the devastating earthquake.

Fernandez said one of the most important things Haiti needed was help in burying its dead.
