This is one of those stories that don't make sense. Why would anybody or group of people attack or as the reports state, loot, a clinic with the deadly virus Ebola, sending the patients into the surrounding community?
Notice that the articles don't mention that the patients were killed, but sent fleeing for their lives into the densely populated 'slum.'
Why would the 'looters' take blood-stained sheets and mattresses from a quarantined center? Where the looters hired? Who were they hired by? Did they know the dangers of Ebola or ignorant pawns?
One thing is for-sure, this will lead to a lager outbreak of the deadly virus Ebola which continues to devastate the lives of the Liberians in various ways and Africa as a whole.

The violence in the West Point slum occurred late Saturday and was led by residents angry that patients were brought to the holding center from other parts of Monrovia, Tolbert Nyenswah, assistant health minister, said Sunday.
Local witnesses told Agence France Presse that there were armed men among the group that attacked the clinic.
"They broke down the doors and looted the place. The patients all fled," said Rebecca Wesseh, who witnessed the attack and whose report was confirmed by residents and the head of Health Workers Association of Liberian, George Williams.Liberia hunts escaped Ebola victims as WHO calls for controls | Reuters
Up to 30 patients were staying at the center and many of them fled at the time of the raid, said Nyenswah. Once they are located they will be transferred to the Ebola center at Monrovia's largest hospital, he said.
