Cholera outbreak haunts UN chief's Haiti trip

Ban Ki-moon makes first visit to island since cholera outbreak blamed on UN soldiers killed more than 8,000 people.

    Ban Ki-moon, the UN Secretary General, is in Haiti for the first time since cholera killed more than 8,000 people.

    The outbreak was widely blamed on UN soldiers from Nepal, which has led to lawsuits and demands for an apology.

    But the UN is still claiming immunity from prosecution.
