Anger as Ivory Coast bans bushmeat

West African governments ban sale of bushmeat to limit spread of fatal Ebola virus amid outbreak in Guinea and Liberia.

    In West Africa there is anger over a ban on local delicacy bushmeat which is thought to carry the deadly Ebola virus.

    At least 140 people have died in an outbreak of the disease in Guinea and Liberia. There is no cure and up to 90 percent of people who contract it die.

    New measures to prevent the spread to neighbouring Ivory Coast are being flouted.
