Haiti has launched a project to rebuild the presidential palace, which was destroyed by a devastating earthquake in 2010, BBC says.

The new complex will be on the same site as the domed building in Port-au-Prince.

Construction will begin before the end of 2017. The cost of the project is yet to be estimated.

More than 25,000 people are estimated to have been killed in the quake. About 300,000 were injured and more than 1.5 million left homeless after the 7,0-magnitude on January 12, 2010.
