    Burial workers in the Sierra Leonean city of Kenema have dumped bodies in public in protest at non-payment of allowances for handling Ebola victims.
    The workers, who went on strike over the issue, left 15 bodies abandoned at the city's main hospital.
    One of the bodies was reportedly left by the hospital manager's office and two others by the hospital entrance.
    A BBC reporter in Sierra Leone says the striking workers have now been sacked. The hospital has not commented.
    Sierra Leone is one of the countries worst affected by this year's Ebola outbreak, with more than 1,200 deaths. :eek: :shocked:
