Spanish priest treated for Ebola, dies

MADRID (AP) - The Spanish missionary priest evacuated from Liberia last week after testing positive for the Ebola virus has died.

A spokesman at a hospital in Madrid says 75-year-old Miguel Pajares died today.

Over the weekend, Spain's Health Ministry had obtained a course of the U.S.-made experimental drug ZMapp to treat the priest, but it didn't say if Pajares was ever given the drug.

Two American missionaries being treated in Atlanta also have been given ZMapp.
