Health officials are working to contain the virus amid an active conflict zone. Health officials in the Democratic Republic of the Congo are struggling to end a new Ebola outbreak - the tenth that has gripped the country since the virus was first identified there in 1976. At least 185 people have contracted Ebola since early August, and the latest cluster of cases has emerged in an area where there is active fighting between the government and more than 100 different armed groups. As Congolese and international health teams work to contain the latest outbreak amid conflict, they are also facing increasing levels of mistrust among the population they are most trying to help. NewsHour Weekend Special Correspondent Benedict Moran and video journalist Jorgen Samso report from the city of Beni in the heart of the latest Ebola outbreak.
