    -One story that stole the headlines in Liberian newspapers Monday is the rejection of some Ebola patients by a government-run Ebola treatment unit on 12th Street in the Monrovia suburb of Sinkor.

The Daily Observer published the story as its banner headline under the caption: Govt Refuses Ebola Suspects for Treatment.
