Four Ebola patients missing after attack on Congo clinic

Butembo Mayor Sylvain Kanyamanda said unidentified raiders burned tents and other equipment at the centre on Wednesday. Assailants also set fire Sunday to another eastern Congo clinic that Doctors Without Borders operates in Katwa, killing one person and injuring another.

The country needs an estimated $148 million to fund its efforts to halt the outbreak.

"Such attacks are deplorable for their immediate impact on lives and for the risk of spreading the disease further", the agency, a public health armed of the United Nations, said in a statement.

Williams told Trump that students would continue to defend him so long as he defended them. The altercation broke out on Upper Sproul Plaza on UC Berkeley campus, according to UCPD.

The current Ebola outbreak, first declared last August, is the second deadliest of the haemorrhagic fever since it was discovered in Congo in 1976. "Patients have been transferred to the Katwa transit center, which World Health Organization is expanding to house and treat these additional patients".

There were 57 patients admitted to the treatment centre at the time of the attack. The group's Congo director, Jean-Philippe Marcoux, called the recent clinic attacks "abhorrent", but said he thinks "it would be too easy to blame them on insecurity and violent groups within communities".

The largest Ebola outbreak to date killed more than 11,000 people in the West African nations of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone between December 2013 and April 2016.
