Haiti postpones Feb. 28 elections

Legislative elections in Haiti that had been scheduled for Feb. 28 will be postponed, President Rene Preval said on Wednesday, due to the Jan. 12 earthquake that killed up to 200,000 people.

"The electoral campaign should have opened tomorrow, and for obvious reasons, that won't be able to happen," Preval told Reuters in an interview at his temporary office.
