Seoul: North Korea is ending a four-month-long ban on foreign tourism over fears of the deadly Ebola virus, a source in regular contact with North Korean officials and a tour operator told Reuters on Monday.

The source, who requested anonymity, said he had been told the Ebola travel restrictions have been lifted.

Koryo Tours, a China-based travel agency which specialises in taking western tourists to the isolated country, said it had been told to expect an announcement regarding the ban later on Monday.

"Our contacts in the country have informed us to expect that we should hear news later today that North Korea will be reopening its borders after a more than four-month closure due to Ebola," Koryo Tours co-founder Nick Bonner told Reuters in a statement.
