CONAKRY, Guinea (AP) -- A Red Cross team was attacked while collecting bodies believed to be infected with Ebola in southeastern Guinea, the latest in a string of assaults that are hindering efforts to control West Africa's current outbreak.
One Red Cross worker is recovering after being wounded in in the neck in Tuesday's attack in Forecariah, according to Benoit Carpentier, a spokesman for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.
Family members of the dead initially set upon the six volunteers and vandalized their cars, said Mariam Barry, a resident. Eventually a crowd went to the regional health office, where they threw rocks at the building.
The attack is the most recent in a series that have plagued teams working to bury bodies safely, provide information about Ebola and disinfect public places. The most shocking was the abduction and killing last week in Guinea of eight people, health workers educating people about Ebola and the journalists accompanying them.

Seriously, this is what happens when you try and go against Natual Selection. I have to really hand it to the dedication of these Ebola workers who are working so hard endangering there lives trying to help people that are too ignorant to live. They wantonly deny facts and are totally backwards. I know it sounds harsh but I were in charge I would pull everyone out of any area where people are attacked like that and build a fence around it. I will probably go to hell for saying that....
