UN Chief Visits Ebola-Ravaged Nations  12/19 06:21

   MONROVIA, Liberia (AP) -- U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon is visiting the countries 
hardest hit by the Ebola crisis in West Africa.

   Ban is meeting Friday with Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf before 
heading to neighboring Sierra Leone, where he'll also meet with the president 
there.

   On Saturday, the U.N. secretary-general will travel to Guinea.

   Ban says the United Nations will stand with the people in the Ebola-ravaged 
countries until the disease is defeated.

   During a visit Thursday to Ghana where his trip started, Ban said: "We must 
make sure that the last case of Ebola is identified, treated and eliminated."

   The current Ebola outbreak in West Africa has killed more than 6,900 people 
since the disease emerged in Guinea a year ago.
