Haiti protests spread to capital

Liberation day marred by violence as UN troops fire tear gas on people blaming them for the outbreak.

    Protests against the UN peacekeepers in Haiti have spread to the capital, Port-au-Prince.

    The protesters, in their hundreds, have been blaming UN peacekeepers from Nepal for the cholera epidemic that has killed more than 1,000 people.

    The UN has repeatedly denied the accusation and described the protests as politically motivated, blaming unarmed groups for taking advantage of the situation to disrupt the upcoming elections.
