Four-year-old Haitian boy Pierre-Stephane drinks some water as he waits for his treatment from B-FAST (Belgian First Aid and Support Team) at a makeshift hospital in a suburb of Port-au-Prince January 20, 2010. A new earthquake shook the devastated Haitian capital on Wednesday morning, creating panic among survivors of last week's devastating quake camped out in the streets but apparently causing no new destruction. The powerful 6.1 magnitude aftershock at daybreak sent shrieking Haitians running away from buildings and walls in the shattered city fearing a repeat of the magnitude 7 earthquake that killed tens of thousands of people eight days ago.
