HEAD: Oxfam: Ebola Could be 'Disaster of Our Generation' The international aid agency Oxfam is appealing to European Union foreign ministers to do more to fight Ebola; a disease Oxfam says could be the "definitive humanitarian disaster of our generation."
The chief of the British charity, Mark Goldring, has called for more troops, funding and medical staff to be sent to Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia - the countries hit hardest by the epidemic. Goldring said countries that fail to make a commitment to fight Ebola "are in danger of costing lives."
The World Health Organization says more than 4,500 people have died from Ebola in West Africa. Health experts predict thousands more deaths before the end of the year.
