MONROVIA, April 9 (Reuters) - A report by Liberia's anti-corruption watchdog found some $800,000 spent in the fight against Ebola at the height of the outbreak of the disease last year was not properly accounted for, most of it passing through the defence ministry.

The General Auditing Commission (GAC) report covering the period from August to October 2014 analysed more than $13 million spent by the National Ebola Trust Fund (NETF). The funds mostly came from foreign donations.
