Port-au-Prince - The death toll from the devastating quake in Haiti rose on Saturday to 112 226, according to new official figures.

The figure continued to rise from the 111 499 deaths confirmed by the interior ministry on Friday.

"There is catastrophic damage," the ministry said in a statement, adding 194 000 people were injured and one million had been left homeless.

It added that most homes had been destroyed in the capital Port-au-Prince as well as the towns of Jacmel and Leogane to the southwest.

"At least 23 private hospitals as well as schools, banks, industry and commerce have all been badly affected," the statement added.
