At least 30 Haiti soccer deaths in quake

Associated Press

SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic Caribbean soccer authorities say at least 30 members of Haiti's soccer federation, including an undetermined number of players, have died in the country's earthquake.

The Caribbean Football Union said the dead included referees, coaches, administrators and medical officials. The federation's headquarters collapsed during last week's quake.

The report to soccer's world governing body on Tuesday adds that federation president Yves Jean Bart survived.
