Philippines recalls peacekeepers from Liberia over Ebola threat

MANILA (Reuters) - The Philippines on Saturday ordered 115 troops to return home from peace-keeping operations in Liberia, spurred by a worsening Ebola epidemic in West Africa that has killed almost 1,500 people. The Philippines has about 800 to 1,000 soldiers and police officers serving under the United Nations flag in conflict and disaster-stricken areas, including Haiti, Sudan, East Timor, Cote d'Ivoire and the Korean peninsula. #United States #India #Business #Technology #Middle East #Russia #markets #Africa #Italy #United Kingdom #Latin America #opinion

Sierra Leone makes harbouring Ebola victims a crime

FREETOWN/ABIDJAN (Reuters) - Sierra Leone's parliament has made the harbouring of Ebola victims a crime punishable by two years' jail in an attempt to stop the spread of the deadly virus, the justice minister said on Saturday. The decision came as the World Health Organization (WHO) warned that the hiding of victims and the existence of "shadow zones" where medics cannot go has concealed the true scale of the epidemic. Some 1,427 people have died among 2,615 cases documented since the current outbreak - the worst since the disease's discovery - was first identified in Guinea in March, according to figures released by the WHO on Friday #United States #Business #Japan #France #Arabic #Africa #Argentina #United Kingdom #Entertainment #Virus

Germany has spied on Turkey since 1976 - Focus magazine

BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany's foreign intelligence agency has been spying on Turkey for nearly four decades, Focus magazine said on Saturday in a report which could raise tensions further between the NATO allies. The details about the duration of possible surveillance and on the decision-making surrounding it go further than first reports earlier this week. Turkey summoned Germany's ambassador in Ankara on Monday after media reports that Berlin had identified Ankara as a top target of surveillance in a government document from 2009 and had been spying on Turkey for years. #facebook #Business #Japan #Brazil #Arabic #Russia #markets #Italy #Turkey #Latin America #Mexico #german

Thousands march in New York City to protest police chokehold death

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The Reverend Al Sharpton led thousands of chanting but peaceful activists in a march across Staten Island on Saturday to protest the death of Eric Garner, who died after New York City police put him in a banned chokehold last month. Protesters traveled by bus and ferry to join the rally over Garner, a 43-year-old black father of six, whose killing has become part of a larger national debate about how U.S. police use force, particularly on people who are not white #United States #China #Business #Japan #Brazil #Arabic #Italy #Entertainment #opinion
