UN hit with cash demand over Haiti cholera

6 years ago12 views

The United Nations has been hit with a demand for hundreds of millions of dollars in reparations because of a year-old cholera outbreak that has killed more than 6,700 Haitians.

The demand was made on Tuesday on behalf of more than 5,000 Haitian cholera victims and their families in a petition filed at UN headquarters in New York by the Boston-based Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti.

The human rights group said the peacekeeping soldiers were not adequately screened by the United Nations.

Al Jazeera's Kristen Saloomey reports from New York.
