FREETOWN (Reuters) - Sierra Leone's army has "sealed off" the borders with Liberia and Guinea in a bid to halt the spread of Ebola, the army spokesman said on Tuesday.

The spokesman told Reuters that troops had been sent to all border crossing points.

Ebola has killed more than 2,800 people in the three countries since the outbreak began in Guinea earlier this year.
