The European Union has agreed to step up efforts to stem the spread of Ebola in affected African countries.

EU Foreign Ministers have pledged at least 500 million euros in aid and guaranteed that infected humanitarian workers will be medically evacuated to safety.

Meeting in Luxembourg, they also said that a European Ebola czar will be appointed to oversee resources and funding. Britain wants the aid effort to reach a billion euros.
