CBC News wins International Emmy for Ebola coverage in Liberia

CBC's extensive news coverage of the Ebola crisis has won an International Emmy Award.

The award-winning team consisted of senior correspondent Adrienne Arsenault, producer Stephanie Jenzer, and videographer Jean-Francois Bisson.

CBC News sent a team to Monrovia, Liberia, in October 2014, to capture stories in the African country worst hit by the disease. More than 11,280 people have been reported to have died worldwide from Ebola, according to data released by the World Health Organization this September.

The CBC's coverage highlighted the economic and political fallout, including an exclusive interview with Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf – and offered an intimate portrait of an eight-year-old girl orphaned by the outbreak. READ MORE OF THIS STORY ON YAHOO NEWS
