world news bulletin: Cholera kills 425 in Zimbabwe outbreak.
More than 11,000 people have fallen sick since August.
The number of cases has shot up in the past two weeks.
The Zimbabwe Association of Doctors for Human Rights has accused the government of trying to downplay the impact of the outbreak, which is blamed on collapsing sewage and water facilities and uncollected rubbish.
The group said that many people are dying unseen at home. It said that collapsing hospital and clinic facilities are also to blame for the unusually high death rate from what should be an easily treatable disease.
