PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) - The Haitian government delivered a progress report on the eve of the fourth anniversary of the massive earthquake that struck the Caribbean nation.

Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe led a presentation to journalists Friday that emphasized his government's accomplishments.

They include a drop in the number of people living in settlements for people who lost their homes in the quake, the construction of more than 5,000 homes and economic growth.

Haiti's rebuilding effort has been criticized for being too slow to house people displaced by the disaster, which hit Port-au-Prince and other cities in the south on Jan. 12, 2010.

There were once 1.5 million people living in the gloomy encampments but an international aid organization says that number is now 146,000.
