Ebola outbreak: Woman quarantined in Australian hospital

Authorities in the Australian state of Queensland say an 18-year-old West African woman is being tested for Ebola after emigrating to Australia from Guinea.

The woman, who has been in home quarantine and monitored by health authorities since her family's arrival 11 days ago, was taken to hospital in Brisbane on Sunday after telling health workers she had developed a fever.

Queensland's chief health officer, Dr Jeanette Young, said the woman was "otherwise well".
