Clinton says U.S. pledges quake help for Haiti

HONOLULU (Reuters) - The United States will provide both military and civilian disaster assistance to Haiti following the devastating earthquake there, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Tuesday.

“The United States is offering our full assistance to Haiti and to others in the region. We will be providing both civilian and military disaster relief and humanitarian assistance and our prayers are with the people who have suffered, their families and their loved ones,” Clinton said at the start of a speech on Asian relations in Honolulu, Hawaii.
