A Nigerian nurse who treated a man with Ebola is now dead and five others are sick with the disease, authorities revealed today - as the death toll in West Africa rose to at least 932 people.

The growing number of cases in Lagos comes as authorities said they did not treat Patrick Sawyer as an Ebola patient and isolate him for the first 24 hours after his arrival in Nigeria last month.

Mr Sawyer, a 40-year-old American of Liberian descent with a wife and three young daughters in Minnesota, was traveling on a business flight to Nigeria when he fell ill.
