Touching down in the capital of Haiti, which was devastated by this week's catastrophic earthquake, today, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today pledged the United Nations' support for the victims of the disaster.

The UN "will continue to stand behind the Haitian people," Mr. Ban said in Port-au-Prince, the city hardest hit by the 12 January tremors, which are believed to have impacted one third of Haiti's 9 million people.
