Haiti quake deaths may be 45,000-50,000: Red Cross

PORT-AU-PRINCE (Reuters) - The death toll from Haiti’s earthquake could be between 45,000 and 50,000, with a further three million people hurt or homeless, a senior Haitian Red Cross official said on Thursday.

“No one knows with precision, no one can confirm a figure. Our organization thinks between 45,000 and 50,000 people have died. We also think there are 3 million people affected throughout the country, either injured or homeless,” Victor Jackson, an assistant national coordinator with Haiti’s Red Cross said.
