Tent city at Guantanamo set as precaution for Haitian refugees

U.S. forces have set up 100 tents at Guantanamo as a rudimentary humanitarian relief site that could house up to 1,000 Haitians if earthquake victims start fleeing their nation, a senior military official here said Wednesday. U.S. Coast Guard officials have said they detected no evidence of Haitians trying to flee their country by sea.
