The UN secretary general has said that a "massive response" is needed to help Haiti recover from the devastation caused by Hurricane Matthew, BBC reports.

 

Some towns and villages had been wiped off the map and tensions were already mounting as people awaited help, Ban Ki-moon said.

 

The UN has also made an emergency appeal for nearly $120m (£97m) in aid.

 

The category-four storm is believed to have killed as many as 900 people in the Caribbean country.

 

Matthew, the strongest hurricane to hit the region in a decade, destroyed tens of thousands of homes in Haiti, leaving more than 60,000 people staying in temporary shelters.
