7:37 pm on 13 November 2014

Fiji police say they are preparing for the return of their UN peacekeepers from Ebola-hit Liberia later this month.

The Police Commissioner says he is working with the UN in New York regarding monitoring of officers when they complete their mission.

Ben Groenewald has told the FBC preparations are underway to evaluate the officers and get them through the three-week Ebola incubation period safely.

He says quarantine arrangements are being made at Nadi airport.

Mr Groenewald says the peackeepers in Liberia are well and the force is looking forward to welcoming them to the country in good health.
