DAKAR, Senegal (AP) — Liberia says it will open up a slum in its capital where thousands of people were barricaded to contain the spread of Ebola.

Information Minister Lewis Brown says lifting the quarantine Saturday morning will not mean there is no Ebola in the West Point Slum.

But authorities feel confident they can screen for the sick and that the community now actively fighting the disease.

The slum of 50,000 people in Liberia's capital was sealed off more than a week ago, sparking unrest and leaving many without access to food or safe water.
