The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has said it could provide Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone with an extra $127m to fight the spread of the Ebola virus.
The money has not been approved by the IMF's executive board, but it could help cover gaps in the west African nations' finances.
"The Ebola outbreak is a severe human, social and economic crisis that requires a resolute response from the international community," IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde said in a statement.
Three men suspected of immigration offences have been arrested after they were spotted falling from underneath a lorry on a motorway, police said.

President Obama says "more than 40 countries" have offered to help in the fight against Islamic State terrorists.
He stressed that the US would not lead the fight alone, but would "do things differently" by building a strong international effort against the terror group, who are also known as Isis or Isil.
He told US military personnel: "We will lead a broad coalition of countries who have a stake in this fight because this is not simply America vs Isil, this is the people of the region fighting against Isil."
"It is the world rejecting the brutality of Isil and fighting for a better future for our children and our childrens' children - all of them," he added.
Scottish support for independence has risen to 49%, an Ipsos MORI poll for STV News suggests on the eve of the referendum.

Former European Commissioners have warned Scotland that its future in the EU is "best secured by staying together in the UK".
President Obama has made clear that the US will not send ground troops to fight Islamic State terrorists in Iraq.

He said US personnel in Iraq were there to "support Iraqi forces on the ground as they fight for their own country against these terrorists".
