In our most recent Guinea alert, the MFWA reported that nine members of a team raising awareness on Ebola were killed. The MFWA correspondent has informed us that while earlier reports said that nine team members died, later information said that only eight died. Three of these eight were journalists.
Villagers in Womey kidnapped nine team members, and all were said to have died. However, on the day of the burial, the authorities said that one kidnapped team member had escaped. Thus, one person out of the nine dead bodies was not a member of the awareness-raising campaign and had died because of other circumstances.
