Aircraft carrier hosts babies

LONDON – ITALY’S new aircraft carrier has a baby on board – and expects to host another 50 children for surgery next week, as it uses its state-of-the-art hospital facilities to help survivors of the Haiti earthquake.

The Cavour arrived off Port-au-Prince on Jan 31 and has set up hospitals onshore as well as offering its onboard scanners, laboratories and surgical facilities, Captain Gianluigi Reversi told Reuters in a telephone interview on Monday.
