Ebola outbreak: Eid celebrations subdued in West Africa

Celebrations in West Africa for the Muslim festival of Eid al-Adha have been badly affected by the Ebola outbreak.

Reports from Guinea say public places used for prayers are deserted while religious leaders in Sierra Leone told Muslims not to shake hands or embrace.

Meanwhile, a French nurse who got the virus in Liberia has recovered after having experimental treatment in Paris.
