Haiti cholera death toll rises

The death toll from a cholera outbreak in Haiti passes 250, health officials say, with more than 3,000 cases reported.

There are fears about what could happen if the disease spreads in Port-au-Prince's squalid tent cities.

Dr Ian Rawson from the Albert Schweizert Hospital says they are unsure how the disease is spreading from one geographic area to another.

Hundreds of thousands people are still living there in terrible conditions after January's earthquake.

Laura Trevelyan reports.
