An attempt to help Haiti?: Americans held in Haiti could have court hearing Monday, pastor says

What a disaster! Following is a link to see a video and a news report by CNN about some Americans who apparently where trying to "help" out orphans (though not all were orphans), but ended up becoming a problem themselves.

Perhaps assisting other already-working organizations would have been a reasonable idea rather than trying to take matters into their own hands...
