U.N. Aid Agency Says Haiti Faces Mass Hunger in Storm's Wake

Superstorm Sandy destroyed 70 percent of Haiti's crops, putting a million and a half people at "serious risk of hunger," The Wall Street Journal reports, citing the United Nations' coordination office for humanitarian aid.

The Caribbean nation's government is appealing for international help, but donors and relief charities are already struggling to support reconstruction efforts following the devastating earthquake in January 2010 that killed some 300,000 Haitians.
