Dozens of Haiti residents took to the streets of Port-au-Prince on Tuesday demanding more services and aid from the government, in the post-earthquake clean-up.

Protestors from the Belair neighborhood built barricades and set fire to debris on the street. Residents say they have not received any money or assistance since the massive quake hit the island on January 12th.

One man even claimed there were still at least two bodies in his home that haven't been removed. Very little debris has been cleared since the quake, and President Rene Preval says the cleanup will cost a total of 1.5 billion US dollars.

Meanwhile, donors have met only 10 percent of the promised 5.3 billion US dollars in reconstruction aid.
