Congo's ebola fight is being made complicated by war and suspicion over vaccine.

Many locals are reluctant to take the vaccination - with some viewing it as satanic.

Health authorities in the Democratic Republic of Congo are struggling to contain the latest outbreak of ebola - with the World Health Organisation admitting the virus remains dangerous and unpredictable.

Since the outbreak began in August, 191 people have died with about half of them in Beni.

Sky News' Africa Correspondent John Sparks reports from the city at the centre of the epidemic.
