An EU aid shipment including vehicles and medical equipment for the three west African nations hardest hit by the Ebola epidemic has arrived in Guinea, officials said on Sunday.

The Dutch navy's largest ship, the Karel Doorman, arrived in Guinea on Saturday and was due to also stop in Sierra Leone and Liberia, a statement from the EU delegation said.

The aid delivered to Guinea included enriched flour, some 20 all-terrain vehicles, ambulances and medical equipment such as masks. Details on the shipment's value and total weight were not available.

The Karel Doorman also delivered aid to the three countries in November, including vehicles and tons of hospital equipment.

Ebola has killed more than 7 500 people over the past year, almost all of them in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone.
