PORT-AU-PRINCE – A contingent of UN peacekeepers is the likely source of a cholera outbreak in Haiti that has killed at least 2,000 people, a French scientist said in a report obtained by The Associated Press.
Epidemiologist Renaud Piarroux concluded that the cholera originated in a tributary of Haiti’s Artibonite river, next to a UN base outside the town of Mirebalais.
He was sent by the French government to assist Haitian health officials in determining the source of the outbreak, a French Foreign Ministry official said.
