Clinton frustrated, hopeful about Haiti's slow recovery

In a phone interview with The Associated Press ahead of the six-month anniversary of the Jan. 12 quake, Clinton said international donors have given only 10 per cent of the aid they promised. He also noted the "enormous difficulty" plaguing rubble removal and construction of housing.

Clinton called the struggle to provide homes for the 1.6 million Haitians still living under tarps and tents "horribly frustrating."

"In the next couple of months we will start working through that at a more rapid pace and getting some of these other things going," Clinton said. "They have enormous potential."
