International aid to battle the Ebola epidemic in Liberia is arriving too slowly, President Ellen Johnson Sir-leaf said yesterday, though she said there were early signs that the outbreak in her West African country might be "in decline".

On a tour of the villages of remote northern Liberia, Johnson Sir-leaf told Reuters that she wanted to give her people hope that the virus could be beaten, though the World Health Organization warned yesterday, there was no evidence yet the epidemic was being brought under control.

The hemorrhagic fever, which has no proven cure, has killed nearly 3,900 people in four West African countries, from a total of more than 8,000 people infected.
