Ebola outbreak response in DR Congo criticised

Health workers battling Ebola in Democratic Republic of Congo are facing 'a climate of deepening community mistrust' nearly seven months after the outbreak began, Doctors Without Borders warns.

    The medical charity Doctors Without Borders has criticised the humanitarian response to the Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

    It said not enough's been done to gain the trust of local communities, increasingly making aid workers a target of violence.

    The comments came as the head of the World Health Organization is visiting the country to get an update on the outbreak.

    Al Jazeera's Alexi O'Brien reports.
