NPR's Michele Norris talks with New York Times reporter Lydia Polgreen, who is covering the unrest in Haiti. Polgreen says Cap-Hatien, where rebels have taken control, is calm but disorganized, with food supplied being looted from the port. The rebels told her they want President Aristide out and they want nothing to do with a power-sharing settlement urged by other nations, including the United States.
