15 year old Shackie Kamara lies in the road with bullet wounds in his legs during rioting in West Point slum in the Liberian capital, Monrovia. The riots followed a move by the government to quarantine the community to prevent the spread of Ebola. Kamara died the next day, unable to find emergency treatment in a city whose healthcare system has all but collapsed under the strain of Ebola.
