UN apologizes for Haiti cholera spread, not for causing it

UNITED NATIONS -- Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon apologized Thursday for the UN not doing enough to contain the spread of a cholera outbreak in Haiti, but he stopped short of apologizing for bringing the disease to the Caribbean nation.

Ban made his remarks in a speech announcing the UN's new approach to cholera in Haiti, which seeks to provide aid to communities affected by the disease that has afflicted some 800,000 Haitians and killed over 9,000.
