Fuel shortages caused by a U.N. embargo have halted food aid shipments to northern Haiti, threatening hundreds of thousands of the nation's poorest and youngest people with severe hunger or even starvation. Haiti's biggest food aid provider, U.S.-based CARE, had already dropped 115,000 people, mainly children, from a hot-food program because of previous delivery problems. On Thursday, it distributed its last grain and cooking oil supplies for another program that targeted 300,000 more people.

In the turbulence that surrounded the departure of President-for-Life Jean-Claude Duvalier, the impoverished people of Haiti saw an opportunity, and they seized it. They pillaged the warehouses of religious organizations that dispense food, they looted farm cooperatives, they took over half-finished buildings in a public housing project. Figures are hard to come by, but the losses from the looting reach into the millions of dollars.
