Doctors Without Borders (MSF) suspended its medical activities at the epicenter of an Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo after two of its facilities were set on fire by unidentified assailants, announced Thursday a French charity.

Two MSF facilities treating Ebola patients in North Kivu province were attacked in separate incidents earlier this week. Humanitarian workers faced mistrust in some areas as they struggled to contain the Ebola epidemic, which has become the worst in Congo's history.
