Prime minister Sheikh Hasina has ordered the health ministry to send a medical team to earthquake-ravaged Haiti, an official said on Thursday.

The 7.0 magnitude earthquake that has devastated Haiti is the most powerful to hit the Caribbean nation in more than a century, according to the US Geological Survey.

Haiti's President Rene Preval, terming the destruction "unimaginable", said Wednesday he feared tens of thousands of people have been killed by the quake and its aftershocks that have demolished government buildings, schools, hospitals and homes.
