Ivory Coast has blocked 400 refugees who fled to Liberia from returning home because of fears they could spread the Ebola virus, a UN official has said.

The decision violated domestic and international law, the official added.

Ivory Coast said it could not allow the refugees in because of the Ebola “pandemic” in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone.

The virus has now killed 603 people in the three states, with 68 deaths reported in the last week, WHO said.

This is the worst outbreak the world has ever seen.

There is no cure for Ebola, which spreads through contact with an infected person’s bodily fluids and there is no vaccine or cure.
