Haiti battles cholera outbreak

Limited access to clean drinking water makes it difficult to contain disease spread.

    Cholera has killed hundreds of people in Haiti and more cases are reported every day.

    Containing the spread of the disease is difficult in the poverty-stricken country where very many people have limited access to drinking water.

    Al Jazeera's Sebastian Walker reports from the rural Artibonite region, where the outbreak started.
