More than 70,000 people are trapped inside the West Point slum in the Liberian capital, Monrovia. Since the government designated the slum an Ebola quarantine zone last week, there has been no way out.
The quarantine measures were imposed after rioters looted an Ebola treatment center in the slum, claiming the virus was a government hoax. Stuck without sanitation or running water and with food supplies for many running low, people fear for their lives.
