Group: Red Cross misusing Haiti donations

BROOKLYN - A Brooklyn organization says the Red Cross is misusing millions of dollars in Haiti relief donations.

The Friday Haiti Coalition says that on a recent trip to Haiti it discovered huge tent cities that would not hold up once the rain and hurricane season starts.

The group says the Red Cross isn't doing all it can to help rebuild the area and is not using donations properly.

A Red Cross spokesman says they've provided emergency shelter materials to 1.2 million people in Haiti as of April 20.
