Health officials in the Democratic Republic of Congo say there have been more than 130 attacks on Ebola health facilities since the outbreak began in August last year.

At least four people have been killed and nearly 40 injured.

The latest attack on Thursday in the town of Butembo forced six health clinics to shut down and doctors to go into hiding.

Health workers in the town have gone on partial strike, demanding more is done to protect them.

Community mistrust and years of insecurity in eastern DR Congo have contributed to the challenges faced by Ebola response teams.
