An authority on Guinean side of the Ganta border has surprisingly closed their border as of this morning, reportedly due to the spread of the deadly Ebola Virus.

Merchants trapped on the Guinean side of the border after the closure quoted the Guinean security personnl as saying that, Liberia was “full of Ebola”, so they were closing the border to prevent Guineans from contacting the virus.

“We had been trapped on the Guinea side since this afternoon when the border was closed, but we begged them to allow us to cross back to Liberia,” said Patricia, a petty trader.
