Letter From U.N. Leadership Shows Signs Of Compromise Over Haiti’s Cholera Epidemic

The Guardian: U.N. response to Haiti cholera epidemic critics signals ‘potential breakthrough’
“The United Nations is showing the first signs of compromise over the Haiti cholera epidemic, after more than five years in which it has consistently refused to accept responsibility for a disaster that has claimed tens of thousands of lives. … The U.N.’s olive branch comes in a letter from its second-in-command, Jan Eliasson, in response to sharp criticisms leveled against the U.N. leadership by the organization’s own human rights experts…” (Pilkington, 6/1).
