The United States has asked the Madrid government for permission to use the US air bases in Spain in its operation to combat the Ebola crisis in Africa, a Defense Ministry source said on Thursday.

"The US authorities have indeed asked Spain to use their bases in the country as a transit point for logistics and engineers building up field hospitals in Liberia and Sierra Leone," the source told Reuters.
