An outbreak of the ebola virus in Uganda has claimed at least 3 lives. Uganda's Health Minister said 2 of the dead were from a family living about 50 miles North of the capital.

An ebola outbreak took place this Summer in the Western part of Uganda near the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo, but Uganda had since declared itself ebola-fre.

Health officials in Uganda say 5 more suspected cases of ebola are being monitored including 2 at an isolation facility at a hospital in Kampala.
