Ebola drug assistance from Canada - 15 seconds video

Canada is set to donate an experimental vaccine to help fight the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

It says between 800 and 1,000 doses of the vaccine, which has only been tested on animals, will be donated to the World Health Organization (WHO) for use in West Africa.

Canada's offer comes after the WHO said it was ethical to use untested drugs on Ebola patients.
