UN spokeman: 'People in Haiti are scared'

The UN has said attacks on relief workers trying to deal with the cholera outbrek in Haiti are seriously hampering their efforts.

Aid flights have been cancelled and water purification and training projects curtailed.

UN troops have been blamed by some residents for bringing the disease into the country. More than 1,100 people have died so far.

Vicenzo Pugliese, a spokesman for the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH), said that people in Haiti were scared after a very traumatic year for the country.
