An outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus in the Democratic Republic of Congo is growing with at least two deaths and a further 29 suspected cases.
Lab tests have confirmed that at least two people have died as a result of the virus and over two dozen more are thought to be infected, the World Health Organisation said.
Officials are monitoring a further 416 people who could have come into contact with Ebola victims and are at risk.
The hemorrhagic fever kills around half of those infected - though some strains have a fatality rate of up to 90%.
The last outbreak of Ebola in DRC was in 2014. It was unconnected to the epidemic in West Africa which killed thousands and became the worst Ebola outbreak on record.
