MSF: Ebola deaths 'not acceptable'

Clinical trials to try to find an effective treatment for Ebola patients are to start in West Africa next month.

The medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres, which has been helping lead the fight against the virus, says three of its treatment centres will host three separate research projects.

Dr Bertrand Draguez, medical director at MSF, told the BBC that an "unprecedented international partnership" has been established to try and offer hope to those suffering.

"It's not acceptable that in the 21st century people are still dying from an acute disease such as Ebola", he added.
