Ebola, Daniel Berehulak:
Eric Gweah, 25, weeps as a burial team removes the body of his 62-year-old father, who died at home, arms thrashing and blood spewing from his mouth, in front of his sons after being turned away at the treatment centers in Monrovia, Liberia, September 18, 2014.
"The only thing the government can do is come for bodies -- they are killing us," Gweah said.
