WHO: We must focus Ebola fight on 15 high-risk nations

The World Health Organisation says it will focus on 15 more African countries to try and stop the global spread of Ebola.

It says these are nations which border Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea or have significant trade or travel links with them.

There have been 9,000 cases of Ebola since the outbreak started and 4,500 people have died from it.

British army medics have been arriving in Sierra Leone to help tackle the outbreak in west Africa.

Fergus Walsh reports.
