Ebola-hit Liberia fires absentee ministers

President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf had told overseas ministers to return within a week as part of a state-of-emergency announcement on August 6, warning that extraordinary measures were needed “for the very survival of our state”. United Nations officials have pledged to step up efforts against the lethal tropical virus, which has infected more than 2,600 and killed 1,427 since the start of the year. The World Health Organization said on Monday more than 120 health workers across west Africa had died during the “unprecedented” outbreak, and more than 240 had been infected.
