Good afternoon:

Extremely bad news from Guinea. VOA News is reporting:

The Guinean government appealed for calm Saturday, after a mob attacked a center where Ebola virus victims were being treated.

The attack took place in the southern town of Macenta on Friday, at a center run by Doctors Without Borders.

Witnesses say some of the attackers accused the international relief group of bringing the deadly virus to the region.

The incident forced Doctors Without Borders to suspend treatment at the site and evacuate its team.

This is a terrible development as there are not enough medical professionals in Guinea to deal with this outbreak.

I fear the worst.

The death toll now stands at 93.
