BROOKLYN - Rescue efforts yielded more survivors Monday in Haiti after the island nation was ravaged by an earthquake last week.

It is estimated the quake killed tens of thousands of people and the death toll could rise to 200,000. Survivors are desperately in need of water, food and medical help.

People worldwide have donated money and supplies. Former President Bill Clinton and his daughter Chelsea traveled to Port-au-Prince Monday to help.

Meanwhile, Haitian-born rapper Wyclef Jean returned from his trip to Haiti and has continued to defend his charity amid accusations of questionable accounting practices. Jean is calling for a mass exodus of Haitians to other parts of the world.
