Liberia is facing a “serious threat” to its national existence as the deadly Ebola virus “spreads like wildfire” there, its defence minister says.

Brownie Samukai told the UN Security Council that the international response to the crisis was “less than robust”.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that thousands more cases could occur in Liberia, which has been worst hit by the West Africa outbreak.

Some 2,288 people have died from Ebola in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone.

The WHO says half of these deaths occurred in the three weeks running up to 6 September.

In Nigeria, eight people have died out of a total 21 cases, while one case has been confirmed in Senegal, with no deaths.
