Media Outlets Report On Lawsuit Seeking Reparations From U.N. For Haitian Cholera Outbreak

CBS News examines the cholera epidemic in Haiti and “an unprecedented lawsuit” against the U.N., whose peacekeepers are suspected of bringing the disease to the country following the 2010 earthquake. However, “[t]he U.N. said it has legal immunity and will not accept claims for compensation,” according to the news service, which features a video news segment on the issue (Glor, 11/7). LiveScience reports on how the strain of cholera imported to Haiti has now spread to the Dominican Republic, Cuba, and Mexico (Parry, 11/6).
