The first patient to be diagnosed with Ebola in the eastern DR Congo city of Goma has died, the governor of North Kivu said on Tuesday.

“Unfortunately, I can confirm that the patient died,” Carly Nzanzu told reporters. The case — the first in a major urban hub in a nearly year-old epidemic of Ebola in the region — has sparked deep concern in neighbouring Rwanda and at the United Nations.
