Calm returned Thursday to the slum of West Point in Liberia's capital that was sealed off in the government's desperate attempt to halt the spread of Ebola, a day after clashes erupted between residents and troops and police who were enforcing the quarantine.Both had received ZMapp, an experimental and unproven treatment for Ebola.Three Liberians currently receiving the same treatment in Liberia -- the first and so far only Africans to get the drug -- were showing "very positive signs of recovery," Liberia's information ministry said earlier this week. Liberia is being hit especially hard by the dreaded virus that has killed more than 1,300 people in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea and Nigeria.
