Cholera that claimed the lives of more than 1,000 people in Haiti has spread to neighboring Dominican Republic, RTTNews said. Dominican Health Minister Bautista Rojas said the country’s medical authorities have registered its first case of cholera on Tuesday. The patient, a Haitian migrant, apparently contracted the disease during his recent visit of his homeland. Meanwhile in Haiti, the UN mission there appealed for an end to violent demonstrations in the cities of Cap-Haitien and Hinche, which it said had seriously hampered its response to the outbreak. On Monday, armed demonstrators also opened fire on peacekeepers at Quartier Morin in the Nord Department, a UN statement said. At least two protesters were killed, including one hit by a bullet fired by a peacekeeper in Quartier Morin.
