THE BRONX - A memorial was held in Port-au-Prince Friday to honor the victims killed in the Haiti earthquake one month ago.

The 7.0-magnitude quake killed more than 212,000, injured 300,000 and left more than 1 million Haitians homeless. A Haiti radio station in Brooklyn, Radio Soleil, has stopped playing its signature happy music to mourn those who died.

Manager Ricot DuPuy says the station has been streaming live news coverage from Haiti since the earthquake struck. "We have to respect the memory of the dead", says DuPuy.
