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.

And with a population set to triple over the next few decades, Niger has the highest birth rate in the world.

Programme produced by Georja Calvin-Smith and Mary Colombel
