PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti - Haiti's government on Thursday unveiled plans to move 400,000 earthquake victims to new settlements outside the destroyed capital.
The first wave of 100,000 people were to be sent to transitional tent villages of 10,000 each near Croix Des Bouquets, a suburb north of Port-au-Prince, Interior Minister Paul Antoine Bien-Aime told reporters.
The minister did not provide a timeline, but Brazilian U.N. peacekeepers were already leveling land at a site where the Inter-American Development Bank planned to help build permanent homes for 30,000 people.
