NEW YORK (AP) — A U.S. advocacy group says in a New York lawsuit that the United Nations should compensate thousands of Haitians who have died from a cholera outbreak.
The Boston-based Institute for Justice & Democracy in Haiti filed the federal lawsuit Wednesday in Manhattan.
Some studies have shown that cholera may have been introduced in Haiti by U.N. troops from Nepal, where the disease is endemic.
The U.N. has said it has legal immunity from compensation claims.
On Tuesday, the U.N. high commissioner for human rights made a rare case for compensation in the Haiti case. But she didn't say who she thought should pay.
