Nurses in Ebola-hit Sierra Leone back to work

Many had abandoned hospitals and clinics for fear of contracting virus that has wrecked havoc in West Africa.

    Nurses in Sierra Leone have started to come back to work as the United Nations' Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon visits West African nations affected by the Ebola outbreak.

    The deadly outbreak has claimed more than 7,000 lives so far while aid is only just beginning to reach some of the worst hit communities in Sierra Leone.
