Via The Guardian: Ebola outbreak: South Korea bars Nigerians from university conference. Excerpt:
A South Korean university rescinded an invitation for three Nigerians to attend a conference and a group of volunteers called off a trip to West Africa amid growing concerns about the spread of the deadly Ebola virus.
The Duksung Women’s University in Seoul said in a statement the school “politely withdrew” its invitation for three Nigerian students to attend an international conference that it is co-hosting with the United Nations starting from Monday.
Fear about a possible spread of the deadly virus had prompted a student from the university to post a plea on the country’s presidential office Web site asking for the cancellation of the entire event.
The university has said it was going ahead with the conference to be attended by students, including 28 from Africa.
