BILL CLINTON has said that donor countries are still holding out on pledges made to rebuild Haiti.

Clinton, who is chairman of the reconstruction fund, said last week that less than 10% of the $5.3bn pledged has been lodged with the fund, and Ireland is one such country that has yet to make good on its promise.

Ireland has pledged over €13m to fund the reconstruction, but only €4m in emergency aid has been received.

RTE.ie has revealed that the remaining funding was expected to go to the Haiti Reconstruction Fund but a spokesperson for Irish Aid said that no funding has yet been transferred.

A spokesperson for Irish Aid has said it may take till 2012 to lodge all the money.

CHELSEA CLINTON has married her longtime beau Marc Mezvinsky at a ceremony last night in New York. The daughter of former president Bill and current secretary of state Hillary wore a Vera Wang dress, as featured in CNN’s pictures.

US SECRETARY OF State Hillary Clinton has said that her husband is unlikely to make it through their daughter’s pending wedding without breaking into tears. The couple’s only daughter, Chelsea, is marrying her long-term boyfriend, investment banker Marc Mezvinsky, at the end of this month.

When asked about details of the wedding, Hillary Clinton would only say that her lips were sealed. She did say that both parents would be “so emotional” at the wedding, and that if Bill “makes it down the aisle in one piece it’s going to be a major accomplishment.”

Chelsea Clinton’s wedding plans are a closely-guarded secret. An estimated 400 people are to be invited, but the bride-to-be has already stipulated that she must know each guest personally. Speculation continues over who among the family’s many famous friends may or may not have been invited.
