(Newser) – The death toll in Haiti’s Jan. 12 earthquake has passed 200,000, the nation’s prime minister says, calling the temblor “a disaster on a planetary scale.” Jean-Max Bellerive tells AFP that some 300,000 more are injured, 250,000 homes and 30,000 businesses lost—and more than 4,000 people have seen limbs amputated after being pinned by rubble.
