Madoff scandal hits charitable groups  

Celebrities, pensioners, banks and charities are among those that have lost money in the alleged $50bn investment scheme under Bernard Madoff, the former US financier.

Organisations such as Human Rights Watch say the scandal has already "destroyed" lives and charitable endeavours.

Michelle Alexander, a Human Rights Watch spokeswoman, gives Al Jazeera her story.
