Philippines Recalls Peacekeepers From Liberia Over Ebola Threat
The Philippines on Saturday ordered 115 troops to return home from peace-keeping operations in Liberia, spurred by a worsening Ebola epidemic in West Africa that has killed almost 1,500 people. The Philippines has about 800 to 1,000 soldiers and police officers serving under the United Nations flag in conflict and disaster-stricken areas, including Haiti, Sudan, East Timor, Cote d’Ivoire and the Korean peninsula. Another 331 Philippine troops deployed in the Golan Heights will return home in October after completing a tour of duty.
