Hurricane Matthew: Haiti in national mourning as aid gears up
Haiti has begun three days of national of mourning for those killed by Hurricane Matthew, which devastated the south of the country.
At least 900 people are believed to have died. Tens of thousands of homes have been destroyed and some 350,000 people need aid, the government says.
Cholera is a major fear, with several deaths reported, as are food supplies, given the destruction of crops.
Matthew went on to barrel up the south-eastern coast of the US, killing 10.
It caused extensive flooding, power cuts and damage to buildings in Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas.
