Residents of Port au Prince prepare for an attack on the Haitian capital, following the rout of police forces in Cap-Haitien, the country's second-largest city, on Sunday. Rebels there have promised to take the capital by next week. The U.S. has sent in 50 marines to beef up security at the American embassy there. NPR's Martin Kaste reports.
