Dangerous job of grave digging in Ebola hit Sierra Leone

As the number of Ebola infections continues to rise in Sierra Leone, the BBC's Andrew Harding has visited a municipal graveyard in the centre of Freetown.

Watching more bodies arrive, he described the "almost industrial scale of the crisis" which meant an adjoining rubbish dump was also being turned into a graveyard.

He also heard from some of the men with the dangerous job of digging graves for the victims of the outbreak.
