Health authorities in the Democratic Republic of Congo have suspended efforts to contain an Ebola virus outbreak in the town of Beni because of worsening rebel attacks.
A militia attacked just “a few metres” from an emergency centre, the country’s health ministry said.
Staff of the World Health Organization (WHO) were forced to leave as a shell hit the building they were in.
It is not clear when the mission might resume.
The health ministry blamed the emergency centre attack on the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), a Ugandan Islamist militant group that has been active since the 1990s.
