Attacks Force Out Ebola Workers in DR Congo

More than one-third of the United Nations' Ebola responders in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo city of Beni have been relocated amid growing insecurity in the area. The military said at least four protesters were killed on Monday when they stormed a UN compound over a perceived failure of UN peacekeepers to prevent attacks by rebel militia groups.
