The State Department says the number of U.S. fatalities in the Jan. 12 earthquake in Haiti is nearing 100.

State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley told reporters Tuesday that confirmed U.S. deaths now number 60, and another 37 Americans were killed but their identities have not yet been officially established.

Crowley said the department has yet to account for about 4,000 U.S. citizens who have been the subject of inquiries by family members or others since the quake.
