GENEVA — The United Nations now says post-earthquake looting of its food supplies in Haiti's capital appears to have been limited.
U.N. World Food Program spokeswoman Emilia Casella says officials in Port-au-Prince have recovered most stocks from four warehouses in the city, and would be handing out 6,000 tons of food aid shortly.
She says earlier reports the U.N. had received of looting appear to have been overblown.
She said 6,000 tons of food stored were found in a damaged warehouse near the capital's Cite Soleil slum. That is about 40 percent of the U.N.'s pre-quake food stocks in Haiti.
Casella said there are six other U.N. warehouses outside the capital, and there were no reports of looting from those.
