(Newser) – Not only child traffickers but also human organ traffickers are targeting Haiti, Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive tells CNN. "There is organ trafficking for children and other persons also, because they need all types of organs," he said. Bellerive gave no further details during the interview, instead rejecting criticism that the Haitian government was not visible enough in the crisis and urging donors to provide more tents before the onset of the rainy season in May.
