"The death of Shackie Kamara"
15 year old Shackie Kamara lies in the street with bullet wounds to his legs during rioting in West Point. The unrest erupted after the security forces imposed a quarantine on the slum community overnight, in an attempt to stop the spread of Ebola. Shackie died the next day, unable to find medical treatment in a city whose healthcare system has collapsed under the strain of Ebola. Monrovia, Liberia. August 20, 2014.
