A medic has spoken of the horrific scenes witnessed by emergency doctors and nurses in the fight against the deadly Ebola outbreak in Guinea.
Naoufel Dridi, who works with humanitarian charity Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), described the suffering by patients struck down by the tropical virus, and the difficulties facing aid workers as they attempt to treat those suffering.
French Mr Dridi, 41, has been helping coordinate the charity’s relief work in the West African country and said that in his 13 years working with MSF he had never had to cope with the number of deaths in such a short space of time.
