  1. Peacekeepers attempt to maintain control of a crowd waiting at an aid distribution point outside Haiti's presidential palace in Port-au-Prince on Monday, Jan. 25. Desperate Haitians pushed through a cordon of Uruguayan peacekeepers to grab at supplies on a truck. The U.N. troops fired riot-control shotguns into the air before they eventually dumped the sacks of beans on the ground and let the Haitians jostle for them, Reuters reported.
