Death toll from Ebola in West Africa rises to 7,518 - WHO

LONDON (Reuters) - The death toll from Ebola in the three West Africa countries hardest hit by the epidemic has risen to 7,518 out of 19,340 confirmed cases recorded there to date, the World Health Organization said on Monday. The latest data reflect more than 140 new deaths since the last update, posted by the WHO barely three days earlier. The epidemic, centred in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, is the world's worst ever outbreak of the hemorrhagic fever. #Japan #Technology #France #Arabic #Africa #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico #article

Exclusive: WHO says Syria approves medicine deliveries to Aleppo, other areas

BEIRUT (Reuters) - The Syrian government has approved the delivery of medicine and surgical supplies to three areas of the country aid workers were previously unable to reach regularly, including opposition-held Aleppo, the World Health Organization said on Monday. All sides in Syria's three-year civil war have prevented medicine from crossing front lines fearing it could be used to help wounded enemy fighters.

Twin bomb blasts in northeast Nigeria bus station kill 20

ABUJA/MAIDUGURI, Nigeria (Reuters) - Two bomb explosions at a bus station in the northeast Nigeria on Monday killed at least 20 people and wounded 40, an emergency services official said, and witnesses said many of the victims had rushed in to help those wounded in the first blast. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack in the city of Gombe. Boko Haram insurgents have repeatedly set off bombs targeting civilians, especially in the northeast where they are trying to carve out an Islamic state. #Business #facebook #United States #Technology #Arabic #Middle East #markets #Argentina #Nigeria #United Kingdom #Mexico #article

U.N. carbon scheme investors unlikely to get lifeline from Lima

LIMA (Reuters) - Hundreds of companies in developing countries that invested in projects to generate UN-backed carbon credits had hoped the Lima climate talks would yield measures boosting the price of the credits, but they are likely to be disappointed. Negotiators and carbon market experts say that discussions at the UN climate conference have not seriously addressed a collapse in carbon credit prices as diplomats focus on the type of commitments countries are expected to make in a new treaty expected next year. "Our clients were hopeful of some type of decisions on that," said Melissa Hirschheimer of Eqao Consulting which assisted many companies in Brazil develop and register projects at the UN. #Business #United States #India #Japan #Brazil #France #Arabic #Russia #markets #United Kingdom #opinion #article
