A day after Communications Minister Marie-Laurence Lassegue raised the official death toll from the Jan. 12 quake to 230,000, her office put out a statement quoting President Rene Preval as saying that 270,000 bodies had been hastily buried by the government in mass graves. Lassegue's office later corrected that to 170,000, citing a typo. Preval's count may be only a piece of the toll -- but nobody at his office was available to clarify. AP
