Ebola outbreak: Guinea team found killed

Eight members of a team trying to raise awareness about Ebola have been killed by villagers using machetes and clubs in Guinea, officials say.

Correspondents say many villagers are suspicious of official attempts to combat the disease.

The discovery comes as Sierra Leone imposes a three-day curfew to let health workers find and isolate cases of Ebola, in order to halt the spread of the disease.

Laeila Adjovi reports from Dakar, Senegal.
