Frontline is airing two late-breaking reports Tuesday, September 9 looking at the Ebola outbreak in Africa and at the atrocities committed by members of the Nigerian military. The program airs at 9:00 p.m. on KUED.
With Ebola spreading out of control throughout West Africa, Frontline: Ebola Outbreak is on the ground with health officials urgently tracking people infected with the deadly disease and trying to stop its rampant spread. Using special access to Sierra Leone's Ebola investigators, the report vividly shows how the unprecedented outbreak is endangering health care workers, overwhelming hospitals, and getting worse.
The program also investigates accounts that members of the Nigerian military have committed atrocities in the fight against Boko Haram, the Islamist militants who kidnapped nearly 300 schoolgirls in April. Amid worldwide pressure to find the girls, Frontline uncovers shocking videos showing arrests, torture, and summary executions of alleged Boko Haram suspects. The program contains graphic imagery and descriptions of violence which may not be suitable for all audiences. Viewer discretion is advised.
