FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) - The Army says it is sending about 120 soldiers from Fort Bragg to Africa to help fight the Ebola virus.

The Department of Defense says the Fort Bragg soldiers are part of about 1,400 men and women who will deploy to Liberia and other areas in West Africa later this month.

The soldiers are providing engineering, logistics, medical and other support. They are also building two treatment centers to combat the deadly disease.

The Fort Bragg soldiers heading to Africa are from the 86th Combat Support Hospital, 44th Medical Brigade and the 16th Military Police Brigade.
