Ebola case priest dies in Madrid

A Spanish missionary priest who was evacuated from Liberia last week after testing positive for Ebola has died.

A spokeswoman said that Miguel Pajares, 75, died today at Carlos III Hospital, where he was being treated.

Spain's Health Ministry said yesterday it had obtained a course of the US-made experimental drug ZMapp over the weekend to treat the priest.

The Madrid hospital would not confirm today that he had been treated with the drug, but his order said earlier he would be.
