"Editor's note: This story originally appeared in the Dec. 11, 2010 issue of The Roanoke Times. Former Roanoke Times Reporter Beth Macy chronicled the The Angel Missions Haiti trip to Port-au-Prince and Limbe, Haiti, on Nov. 10-17, 2010. Macy’s trip was funded by the Dart Society, a nonprofit dedicated to supporting journalists who cover violence and trauma, with collaboration by the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University, of which Macy was a 2010 fellow. In conjunction with the U.N.'s acceptance of its role in the deadly 2010 cholera outbreak, it is being republished. ", www.roanoke.com
"The United Nations has never accepted responsibility, and has answered lawsuits on behalf of victims in U.S. courts by claiming diplomatic immunity. U.N. deputy spokesman Farhan Haq's statement referring to the U.N.'s 'own involvement,' which was sent to The Associated Press on Thursday, came a step closer to an admission of at least some responsibility and was welcomed by lawyers for the victims. Five U.N. human rights experts criticized the United Nations in a letter to top U.N. officials late last year for its 'effective denial of the fundamental right of the victims of cholera to justice.' According to government figures, cholera has sickened more than 770,000 people, or about 7 percent of Haiti's population, and killed more than 9,200. According to a report last November, only $307 million has been received. Haq said the announcement of U.N. plans for new action to address cholera was made in response to a draft report by the U.N. special", www.ctpost.com
"UN officials have acknowledged for the first time that the organization bears responsibility for the 2010 cholera outbreak in Haiti that has sickened hundreds of thousands and left some 10,000 dead. UN officials have refused for years to acknowledge a role in bringing cholera to Haiti, but suspicions have long fallen on a contingent of UN peacekeeping troops from Nepal who arrived after the January 2010 earthquake that devastated the capital of Port-au-Prince.", www.bostonglobe.com
