Sierra Leone audit claims Ebola funds unaccounted for
An audit in Sierra Leone has revealed that 30% of internal Ebola funds have not been properly accounted for.
According to an official report published on Friday, money was paid from various emergency accounts with no proper documentation such as receipts.
The auditors said that 25bn leones (£3.7m; $5.7m) worth of spending did not have supporting documentation.
Almost 23,000 people have been infected by the Ebola outbreak in west Africa since March 2014.
The audit report was published as Sierra Leone suffered a new setback on Friday with 700 houses in its coastal Aberdeen region quarantined, according to AFP news agency.
