Special Report: 8.8 Magnitude Earthquake Hits Chile |


Aid has continued to pour into Chile, five days after the earthquake hit. Latin American nations have bolstered the Chilean army efforts to distribute food aid in disaster zones.

A team of Cuban doctors specialized in emergency situations and natural disasters landed in Chile's capital Santiago early on Wednesday.

A separate team of Venezuelan emergency workers were also due to arrive later in the evening. The Venezuelan government has supplied man power to complement its donations of food and water.
