Haitian women walks along a flooded street in Gonaives, Haiti, September 26, 2004. U.N. peacekeepers beefed up security in the Haitian city of Gonaives where more than 1,000 people died in floods, after desperate survivors fought each other to get at emergency food supplies. The decision to boost security around relief operations was made after UN troops had to fire into the air on Wednesday to prevent looting when the first beans, rice and other supplies were handed out to an estimated 20,000 flood victims.
