PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) - A Red Cross official says a school has collapsed in northern Haiti, killing three children.
Red Cross spokesman Pericles Jean-Baptiste says the children were in the school when a wall collapsed at about noon Monday in the city of Cap-Haitien, about 80 miles (130 kilometers) north of the country's quake-shattered capital.
Officials say the area saw heavy rains and a small earthquake overnight, though the cause of the collapse is not immediately clear. The quake was not recorded by the U.S. Geological Survey.
A magnitude-7 quake on Jan. 12 near Port-au-Prince killed
roughly 200,000 people.
Schools reopened last week in the north but they remain closed in the capital.
