Venezuela Flies Aid To Storm-Ravaged Haiti

President Hugo Chávez says a plane is carrying food and bottled water to the city of Gonaives.

The Bolivarian News Agency said Sunday that Venezuela will also send aid workers and medicine.

Some 33 tons of aid were delivered from the U.N. World Food Program on Friday -- the largest single shipment to reach Gonaives since four deadly storms swept Haiti in recent weeks.

Haiti is Latin America's poorest country.
