Sierra Leone cancels Christmas amid Ebola fight..............

Ebola-plagued Sierra Leone is banning holiday celebrations this year as it continues to fight the deadly virus, the head of the government's Ebola response unit told reporters.
There will be "no Christmas and New Year celebrations this year," Palo Conteh said in the capital of Freetown, according to AFP.
"We will ensure that everybody remains at home to reflect on Ebola," he said. "Military personnel will be on the streets at Christmas and the New Year to stop any street celebrations."
