The United Nations says it will rush aid deliveries to Chile after the government asked for help in its
recovery from this weekend's massive earthquake.

U.N. humanitarian spokeswoman Elisabeth Byrs says Chile officially made its request Monday, two days after the 8.8-magnitude quake struck about 200 miles south of the capital, Santiago, and killed over 700 people.
