And back in the United States, in New Orleans, Mayor Mitch Landrieu has announced the city has reached a $13.3 million settlement over three police brutality cases from the weeks before and after Hurricane Katrina. One of the cases involves the death of 40-year-old Ronald Madison, who was shot and killed on September 4, 2005, when a group of New Orleans police officers opened fire with AK-47s on families crossing the Danziger Bridge in search of food following Hurricane Katrina. Police later tried to cover up the case. Another case involved the death of 48-year-old Raymond Robair, who was beaten to death by a police officer one month before the hurricane. The families have been seeking justice in these cases for 11 years.
