Armed men attack Ebola treatment centre again in DR Congo.

Armed men have once again attacked an Ebola treatment centre in North Kivu, the restive east of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), killing a policeman and wounding a health worker, according to local authorities.



Acording to Sylvain Kanyamanda, Butembo’s mayor, the facility, located at Butembo in North Kivu province, only resumed operations last week after a previous assault by gunmen had forced its closure but Saturday’s attack was successfully repelled by security forces.IMG-20180912-WA0030
