Anger in Haiti at delayed aid Earthquake survivors build barricades out of bodies, January 15, 2010
Anger is growing in Haiti amongst survivors of the killer earthquake as international aid struggles to get through.

And according to eyewitnesses, some people have even resorted to building barricades using the bodies of victims out of fury over the missing help following the devastating tremor.

Photographer Shaul Schwarz from ‘Time’ magazine told Reuters: “They are starting to block the roads with bodies."
In the capital city of Port-au-Prince, a minimum of two barricades made from dead bodies and rocks can be seen.
“It’s getting ugly out there," Schwarz added. "People are fed up with getting no help."
