Citigroup Inc.'s headquarters in the Haitian capital of Port-Au-Prince collapsed in Tuesday's earthquake, injuring the New York banking company's top executive in the nation.

The company is trying to account for 44 people in all, who worked in the three-story office building, Liliana Mejia, a Miami spokeswoman for Citigroup said. Gladys Coupet, its top executive in Haiti, suffered a broken leg, Mejia said. No information was available on other employees, she said. Though some of the office's functions were transferred to Mexico City, most of its Haitian banking business has been disabled, she said.
