Ebola crisis: Liberia schools reopen

Schools are reopening in Liberia on Monday following closure due to the epidemic of the deadly Ebola disease.

Liberia was the country worst hit, with nearly 4000 deaths in what was the worst ever outbreak of the disease.

The Liberian government shut its schools to try to stop the disease spreading.

This measure, along with many others, appears to have been effective as Liberia now only has a handful of cases of Ebola left.

Mark Doyle reports.
