17 suspected Ebola patients returned to quarantine in Liberia


Seventeen suspected Ebola patients who went missing in Liberia after a health centre in the capital was attacked have been found, a minister has said.

"They were traced and finally they turned themselves in" at a treatment centre, Lewis Brown told the BBC.

The government had previously denied they were missing.

New UN figures show that 1,229 people have now died since the beginning of this year in the outbreak that has also hit Sierra Leone, Guinea and Nigeria.

The World Health Organization says there were 84 deaths reported between 14 and 16 August.

The Ebola outbreak in West Africa is the world's deadliest to date. The disease has no known cure.
