The World Health Organisation has authorised the use of experimental drugs to fight Ebola as the death toll topped 1,000 and a Spanish priest became the first European to succumb to the latest outbreak.

The declaration by the UN's health agency came, after a US company that makes an experimental serum called ZMapp said it had sent all its available supplies to hard-hit West Africa.

UN chief Ban Ki-moon announced plans to step up the global response to the outbreak, while urging governments to "avoid panic and fear" over an easily-preventable disease.
