Haiti cholera outbreak stabilising

    Haitian authorites appear to be containing the spread of cholera - which has so far killed 260 people - but the UN is preparing for a nationwide outbreak, saying it is possible that tens of thousands of people could become infected.

    More than 3,300 cases have already been confirmed.
