Bamako: Mali has suffered a new case of Ebola infection -- separate from its only other one detected last month -- with the death of a nurse who treated a patient from Guinea, medical sources said late Tuesday.

"The nurse, who had been in contact with a Guinean national who died of the illness, died in turn," the head of the Pasteur Clinic in the capital Bamako told AFP, adding that tests had confirmed the Ebola virus.
