Ebola: Clashes erupt in Liberia as government enforces quarantine

Liberia is suffering the fastest rise in fatalities from West Africa's Ebola epidemic. Tensions among frightened communities in Monrovia have sparked clashes with police trying to enforce a quarantine on one of the city's slum neighbourhoods. Also, Paris turns to Mali for help in getting to the bottom of a probe into the campaign finances of former French President Nicolas Sarkozy. And with a population set to triple over the next few decades, Niger has the highest birth rate in the world.
