Cholera, mass graves: Haiti death toll reaches 1,000 in grim Hurricane Matthew aftermath
The small Caribbean nation, which shares an island with Dominican Republic, has been struggling to deal with the aftermath of the powerful storm that uprooted trees and destroyed houses. Hundreds of people were killed in structure collapse and flooding, with winds blowing at up to 230 kilometers per hour (140 miles per hour).
It emerged that at least 13 people have died in an outbreak of cholera in the aftermath of the disaster.
Haitian authorities have announced a three-day period of mourning amid emergency work trying to contain the damage.
