Representatives from more than 20 countries met at the World Bank to pledge hundreds of millions of dollars for Haiti's reconstruction. Haiti, the western hemisphere's poorest nation, is recovering from an armed rebellion earlier this year that killed about 200 people and drove President Jean-Bertrand Aristide from power. The World Bank estimates Haiti needs $1.3 billion to rebuild. NPR's Michele Kelemen reports.
