A World Health Organization doctor was killed as a result of an attack at a Congo hospital, amid the ongoing Ebola outbreak in Butembo.
In a statement today, the World Health Organization said two other people were injured in the attack, but are believed to be in stable condition.
"At the same time, we remain committed to continue supporting the Ministry of Health of DRC to end this outbreak as quickly as possible", he said.
The violence is the latest in a series of attacks on Ebola treatment centers by militiamen and those distrustful of the worldwide response to the outbreak.
According to a DRC media report, the unidentified attackers struck clinics at Catholic University of Graben, killing a foreign doctor, burning a truck carrying health workers, and causing other damage.
The attack took place during a coordination meeting being held at the hospital at that time.
One militant was killed and four more arrested after the attack on the Katwa hospital in the city of Butembo, said Sylvain Kanyamanda, the mayor of Butembo. True enough, the attack was just the latest of a string of attacks on the health workers trying to contain the outbreak.
The Ebola outbreak in eastern Congo's North Kivu and Ituri provinces began in August.
The epicentre of the outbreak was first located in the rural area of Mangina, but then switched to the town of Beni.
Local organisations have said the number of Ebola deaths is rising.
More than 1,200 confirmed and probable cases of Ebola have been recorded since the outbreak began, with more than 760 deaths confirmed. It was the third attack on that centre.
On March 9, an attack on a treatment centre at Butembo left a policeman dead and a health worker wounded.
Robert Kitchen, senior vice president for emergencies with the International Rescue Committee, predicted it could take at least another year to contain the Ebola outbreak without a significant change in "community engagement and understanding".
More than 102,000 people have received an experimental but effective Ebola vaccine.
