Ebola outbreak: Senegal announces restrictions

Senegal has become the latest country to close its borders to travellers from Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone, in an attempt to stop the spread of the Ebola virus.

The decision came despite a warning from the World Health Organisation that such measures could be counterproductive, especially if they prevent doctors from going to help tackle the crisis.
