In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, an outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus has become the worst in the country’s history. Congo’s health ministry says nearly 200 people have died of the infectious hemorrhagic fever. About half the victims are from the city of Beni, where recent attacks by armed groups fighting for control of Congo’s mineral wealth have slowed efforts by medical workers to halt the spread of Ebola.
