The body of a dead patient tested positive for Ebola in northern Sierra Leone, just hours after the World Health Organization (WHO) declared West Africa Ebola-free.

Two tests were carried out on the body from Tonkolili district by UK medical experts before confirming the case on Friday.

The deceased patient, a 22-year-old woman, was attending school when she fell sick and returned home to her parents in the city of Magburaka.
