France has accused the U.S. of occupying stricken Haiti, saying its military surge is hindering the relief effort. The French minister in charge of humanitarian aid has asked the UN to clarify America's role in the country. He says after assuming charge of Haiti's main airport, they've been turning away emergency supplies in favor of military planes. The charity Doctors without Borders backed his call to the UN, saying lives were being put at risk. US commanders insist they agreed to give priority to aid shipments last night after UN intervention.
