Liberia Battles Spreading Ebola Epidemic

MONROVIA, LIBERIA - AUGUST 16: A boy runs as Liberian police escorting an Ebola burial team fire shots into the air on August 16, 2014 in Monrovia, Liberia. A crowd of several hundred local residents, chanting, "No Ebola in West Point," drove away the burial team and their police escort. The mob then forced open an Ebola isolation ward and took the patients out, many saying that the Ebola epidemic is a hoax. The isolation center, a closed primary school originally built by USAID, was being used by the Liberian health ministry to temporarily isolate people suspected of carrying the virus. Some 10 patients had "escaped" the building the night before, according to a nurse, as the center had no medicine to treat them. The Ebola epidemic has killed more than 1,000 people in four West African countries, with Liberia now having the most deaths. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)
