LEOGANE, Haiti — Bill Clinton said Friday that international donors are still reluctant to make good on billions of dollars in pledges for Haiti's post-earthquake reconstruction.

Visiting a town where hundreds of thousands of homeless still live under tarps and tents, the former US president told The Associated Press he hopes the presentation of $300 million worth of projects at the Aug 17 meeting of the commission he co-chairs with Haiti's prime minister will help open their wallets.
