According to the agency, attacks by armed opposition groups in Beni "have occurred with alarming frequency." The most recent attack on September 22 left 21 people killed.
"As a result, WHO and its UN partners were asked to halt operations in Beni, while the city mourns its dead. As of today, some operations have begun to resume, but even a gap of two days has resulted in health workers not being able to reach contacts of Ebola patients to monitor their health; or investigate alerts of potential cases," the statement read.
