Ebola: Mali death - 'people shouldn't panic'

The death of a two-year-old girl on Friday has been confirmed as Mali's first fatal case of Ebola.

The west African nation has appealed for calm and has said that it can contain the virus despite fluid boundaries with Guinea where the toddler was believed to have been infected.

Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone have borne the brunt of the 10,000 reported cases of the virus.

The BBC's Anne Soy reports from Accra.
