A Brazilian-led U.N. peacekeeping force works to maintain some sense of order in Haiti, plagued by gang-style violence, a rash of kidnappings and yet another hurricane. Brazil's president says his troops need help, and the United Nation's Kofi Annan agrees. Farai Chideya speaks with journalist Michael Deibert, who's just returned from Haiti, about the strife, and about efforts to conduct elections.
