In Sierra Leone, striking burial workers in the eastern town of Kenema have dumped the bodies of Ebola victims at the entrance to a hospital in an act of protest over pay. The workers say they have not received their weekly hazard payments in nearly two months despite the dangers of their work. Officials said the workers would be fired for mistreating the bodies. The protest comes as Dr. Aiah Solomon Konoyeima has become the eighth Sierra Leonean doctor to contract Ebola. All seven others have died.
