Liberia confirmed on Wednesday it had at least two cases of Ebola, nearly two months after the West African country worst hit by the disease had been declared free of it. More than 11,200 people have died since last year in the worst ever outbreak of Ebola, nearly all of them in three neighbouring countries, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. Liberia was the worst-hit, with more than 4,800 people dying, but was declared Ebola-free by the World Health Organization on May 9 after 42 days passed with no new infections.
