Uganda testing two for Ebola

The authorities in Uganda are testing blood samples from two people who have died in the west of the country.

There is suspicion they may have contracted the Ebola virus.

Uganda has been on high alert because of the outbreak of the haemorrhagic fever in eastern Congo, just across the border from Kagadi where the victims died.

On Thursday the United Nations warned the risk of Ebola spreading to neighbouring countries was very high.
