Liberia said it planned to treat two infected doctors with an unproven Ebola medicine called ZMapp. The outbreak is the world's largest and deadliest and the U.N. agency last week declared it an international health emergency. So far, 1,013 people have died, the vast majority in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, though two have died in Nigeria.
