The United Nations vowed yesterday, to play a "strong role" in helping Liberia and its neighbours fight a deadly outbreak of Ebola in west Africa, which it said could take months to bring it under control.

Liberia has been particularly hard hit by the epidemic that has swept relentlessly across the region since March, accounting for almost half of the 1,427 deaths.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon's special representative for the country Karin Land-gren said that "Ebola in Liberia must be addressed to ensure a stable economy, future and society. She added that the magnitude of this outbreak requires a higher level of coordination than previous responses and the UN Mission in Liberia will play a strong role in this effort.
