The search for survivors in Haiti has officially been called off as the government ends the search and rescue phase of the quake relief effort.
The United Nations says at least 132 people were pulled out alive from under the rubble.
The latest known rescues were those of an 84-year-old woman and a 22-year-old man who were pulled out of the rubble in the capital Port-au-Prince.
They survived ten days under the rubble.
Meanwhile, while the world is preoccupied by the horror in Haiti, little attention has been paid to at least 30 earthquakes that have rocked Malawi in the past month.
The largest measured six-point-two on the Richter scale. Scientists are calling the quakes in Karonga, along the Great Rift Valley on the Tanzanian border, an "earthquake swarm".
They are conducting geological assessments to ascertain if more are on the way.
