BERLIN (AP) A member of a South Korean medical team treating Ebola patients in Sierra Leone has been flown to Germany after suffering an injury with a hypodermic needle.

Berlin's renowned Charite hospital said in a statement that the unidentified medic was taken to its special isolation unit Saturday.

The hospital didn't say whether an Ebola infection had been confirmed in the patient, but said a news conference would take place later in the day.

The World Health Organization says more than 8,000 people have died from the Ebola outbreak that began in West Africa about a year ago.
