Haiti is in need of at least 1,000 more nurses and as many as 100 doctors to control the number of deaths from its cholera epidemic, the UN's top humanitarian official said Wednesday.

In Haiti, UN humanitarian chief Valerie Amos said doctors and nurses across Haiti were overwhelmed and their efforts were being hampered by dire shortages of necessary supplies, from soap to body bags.

Meanwhile, the World Bank has announced a $10m (£6.3m) emergency grant for Haiti.
