GENEVA: A Liberian man suspected to have Ebola virus has died in quarantine in Lagos, Nigeria, a Nigerian official in Geneva told Reuters Friday.

The man, who collapsed on arrival at the airport in Nigeria's commercial centre, Lagos, Thursday, was being kept in isolation by authorities and had not entered the mega-city of 21 million people, he said.

"While he was in quarantine he passed away," the official said.
