Haiti official says mass graves now hold 70,000 quake dead

Medical assistance, search and rescue teams, fresh water and food began reaching more Haitians on Sunday as logistics improved at the airport and international groups coordinated relief efforts. But the number of rescues — just 62 by White House count — were meager compared to Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive's assertion that 60 government trucks had collected 70,000 dead for mass burial — a figure that included only the capital and nearby Leogane.
