John Travolta piloted a plane laden with aid supplies and Scientologists to Haiti today to bolster the Us-based group's disaster relief effort.
The actor and leading Scientologist flew his own Boeing 707 to the capital, Port-au-Prince, shortly before Us troops pulled a 35-year-old man alive from the rubble of a collapsed building in Port-au-Prince. The man, saved two weeks after the earthquake was taken to hospital. Witnesses said he appeared to have few injuries.
Travolta's aid delivery, including six tonnes of ready-to-eat military rations and medical supplies, came as impatience with food distribution sparked a small riot in front of the national palace and President René Préval announced he would move into a tent in solidarity with hundreds of thousands left homeless by the quake.
Aid continued building up at the airport with planes
