British and Canadian news shows win Int'l Emmys

British and Canadian TV productions have been awarded the 2015 International Emmys for News and Current Affairs.

"The National - The Ebola Effect," produced by the Canadian Broadcasting Corp., won the News category. A CBC crew, covering the story from the Liberian capital of Monrovia, reported on the deadly Ebola virus that spread through several West African countries and raised fears around the world.

"Children on the Frontline," produced by Britain's ITN, was the winner in the Current Affairs category. The investigative report told the story of five young children impacted by the war in Syria.

The winners were announced Monday night by the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences during a ceremony at Lincoln Center in conjunction with the U.S. News Emmys.
