UN peacekeepers leaving Liberia due to Ebola

More than 500 Filipino troops withdrawing from war-ravaged West African nation, leaving country's security vulnerable.

    United Nations peacekeepers from the Philippines are about to pull out from Liberia because of the Ebola outbreak.

    Liberia is the worst-hit country with more than 6,500 cases, about half the current total of 13,000 across the worst affected part of West Africa.

    The peacekeepers are unlikely to be replaced, leaving the country's security vulnerable.
