ST. MARC, Haiti — A cholera epidemic was spreading in central Haiti on Friday as aid groups rushed doctors and supplies to fight the country's deadliest health crisis since January's earthquake. At least 142 people have died and more than 1,000 others were ill.
The first two cases of the disease outside the rural Artibonite region were confirmed in Arcahaie, a town in the same administrative region as the quake-devastated capital, Port-au-Prince.
Officials are concerned it could reach the squalid tarp camps where hundreds of thousands of quake survivors live in the capital.

HOBART, Tasmania — A truck carrying $246,000 worth of salmon crashed in Tasmania, spilling 15 tons of fish into the street.
The crash in the capital of Hobart on Friday sparked a major cleanup operation and brought down power lines, cutting electricity to nearby suburbs.
Tasmania police told Australian Broadcasting Corp. that the driver crashed into a power pole and the truck tipped over.
