The 7.2 magnitude quake destroyed thousands of homes and buildings in a struggling nation, which is still clawing its way back from another major earthquake 11 years ago and is reeling from the assassination of its president.

Southwestern Haiti bore the brunt of the blow, especially in the region around the town of Les Cayes.
