Via The New York Times: Liberian Boy Dies After Being Shot During Clash Over Ebola Quarantine.
A teenage boy who was wounded on Wednesday during clashes at an Ebola-stricken neighborhood in Monrovia, Liberia, died of bleeding and hypothermic shock after being shot in his legs, said Dr. Mohammed Sankoh, the medical director of Redemption Hospital.
The teenager, Shakie Kamara, 15, was part of a large crowd of young men who tried to storm out of the neighborhood, West Point, which was placed under quarantine the night before. Soldiers fired live rounds to drive the protesters back into their neighborhood.
Two other residents also were shot during the disturbances. They were taken to Redemption Hospital and were released on Thursday, Dr. Sankoh said.
