Liberia to prosecute man with Ebola in the US for lying

Liberian authorities say they will prosecute the man diagnosed with Ebola in the US, accusing him of lying over his contact with an infected relative.



When the Liberian, Thomas Eric Duncan, left the country last month, he filled out a questionnaire saying none of his relatives was sick.



But Liberia's assistant health minister said Duncan had taken a sick relative to a clinic in a wheelbarrow.



Duncan is in serious condition in a Dallas hospital.



His is the first Ebola patient to be diagnosed on US soil, where as many as 100 people are now being checked for exposure to Ebola.
