Rare Images Of Haiti's Soon To Be Demolished National Palace [Photos]
Reuters Photojournalist Swoan Parker captures one of the country's most important historical sites weeks before its final demolition.
In 2010 the nation of Haiti, one of the poorest countries in the western hemisphere, was struck with a cataclysmic earth quake which decimated much of its already fragile infrastructure. Almost two years later, Haiti still struggles with rebuilding its towns and cities as thousands continue to live in make-shift houses across the region. One structure that especially received the brunt of the earthquake was Haiti's famed National Palace, which acted as the country's White House, and whose impressive visage was a major source of pride.
