For years, the United Nations has refused to publicly acknowledge that its troops were the source of a massive cholera outbreak in Haiti in the wake of the 2010 earthquake.

But now the U.N. is accepting "moral responsibility" for the outbreak that has sickened nearly 800,000 people and killed more than 9,000 others.

The New York Giants have released kicker Josh Brown over his admitted abuse of his then-wife, in a case that has previously raised questions about the NFL's willingness to punish players who commit acts of domestic violence.

"We believed we did the right thing at every juncture in our relationship with Josh," team President John Mara said in a statement. "Our beliefs, our judgments and our decisions were misguided. We accept that responsibility."

The name of the suspect who was killed wasn't immediately released.

  WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - The Sedgwick County Zoo says an orangutan who briefly escaped its enclosure found a weakness in the wire mesh of its enclosure. Zoo officials say a 11-year-old Sumatran orangutan named Tao appears to have unwoven the mesh enough to slip through the hole and escape into a public area.  She went back into the enclosure on her own, and all orangutans were secured indoors within 11 minutes. Zoo spokeswoman Melissa Graham says a guest reported the possible orangutan escape at 10 a.m. Tuesday, and zoo officials quickly escorted visitors to places of safety.
