Is the UN responsible for an outbreak of cholera in Haiti?

According to new scientific evidence, UN peacekeepers were most likely responsible for an outbreak of cholera, that killed over seven thousand people, in Haiti.

Research has found that the strain of the disease in Haiti is identical to that which is common in Nepal where the UN troops were from. The UN now faces compensation claims.

International Development correspondent Mark Doyle reports from Port Au Prince.
