India postpones Africa summit over Ebola outbreak.
The deadly Ebola outbreak in West Africa has forced India to postpone plans for a December summit in New Delhi attended by representatives of more than 50 African nations.
The spread of the virus, which has killed more than 2,600 people in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone this year, made it "logistically difficult given the public health guidelines to manage" the Third India-Africa Forum Summit.
India had been expecting nearly 1,000 delegates including ministers, government officials and business leaders for the meeting on December 4th, expected to be one of the biggest international events in the country in years.
