Health authorities are investigating whether the tanks contaminated the Artibonite River, which is in a region where the majority of cholera cases have occurred, according to the Pan American Health Organization. The camp was inhabited by U.N. soldiers from Nepal, where a cholera outbreak recently occurred.

The U.N. mission has denied responsibility.
