The head of the UN mission charged with fighting Ebola in West Africa has said he does not yet have the resources necessary to defeat it.

Tony Banbury said more help was urgently needed, despite significant contributions from the UK, China, Cuba and the US.

But he was hopeful of achieving the target of 70% bed space for new cases and 70% safe burials by December.

The confirmed death toll is now 4,818, says the World Health Organization.

All but 27 of the deaths have been in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea – the three nations worst affected by the outbreak.
