2 Killed in Protest at UN Base in Haiti
Clashes have erupted between protesters and UN troops in Haiti amidst rising unrest over a cholera outbreak that’s killed more than 900 people. On Monday, two people were killed in a protest at a UN peacekeeping base in the city of Cap-Haïtien. Nepalese troops stationed there have been accused of inadvertently bringing the cholera outbreak to Haiti. Health experts have said the cholera strain is uncharacteristic of Haiti and the Caribbean but closely matches the Nepalese troops’ home region. Over 14,600 people have been treated with cholera-like symptoms, and cases have now been reported in all ten of Haiti’s provinces. At a tent camp in Port-au-Prince, Francois Servranckx of the group Doctors Without Borders said the outbreak continues to grow.
