Dakar - At least four people have died from Ebola in Liberia's capital, a World Health Organisation and a government official said on Tuesday, the first confirmed deaths in Monrovia from a months-long regional outbreak.

“There are seven cases reported in one of the suburbs of Monrovia and four are confirmed. They are all dead,” said WHO's country representative Nestor Ndayimirije.
