U.S. hospitals gird for Ebola panic as flu season looms

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A young woman complaining of abdominal pain and nausea who had traveled to Africa arrived at a Long Island hospital fearful that she had contracted Ebola. She did not have the virus, but the pregnancy test was positive. The woman had been to South Africa, more than 3,400 miles (5,400 km) from the three West African countries enduring the worst Ebola outbreak on record, and the trip ended six weeks prior, or twice the potential incubation period for Ebola infection #Business #facebook #France #Arabic #Middle East #markets #Africa #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico #Virus #opinion

Half-mumbled prayers and friction at Jerusalem's holiest site

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israeli and Palestinian police kept a tight watch over the al-Aqsa mosque compound on Sunday amid high tension between Muslims and Jewish visitors to the holy site and calls from Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to defend it by "all means". Clashes have flared repeatedly in the past few weeks as increasing numbers of Jews have visited the sacred area during the Jewish holidays, angering Palestinians who see this as part of an Israeli agenda to alter a long-preserved status quo. The ornate marble and stone compound, known as Noble Sanctuary to Muslims and Temple Mount to Jews, is the third-holiest site in Islam and the holiest in Judaism #Business #facebook #Brazil #Technology #France #Arabic #markets #United Kingdom #Mexico

Hong Kong street clashes erupt despite imminent talks

HONG KONG (Reuters) - Violent clashes erupted in Hong Kong early on Sunday for a second night, deepening a sense of impasse between a government with limited options and a pro-democracy movement increasingly willing to confront police. The worst political crisis in Hong Kong since Britain handed the free-wheeling city back to China in 1997 entered its fourth week with no sign of a resolution despite talks scheduled on Tuesday between the government and student protest leaders. Beijing has signalled through Hong Kong's leaders that it is not willing to reverse a decision in late August that effectively denies the financial hub the full democracy the protesters are demanding for an election in 2017 #Politics #Business #facebook #Brazil #France #Russia #Government #Argentina #Mexico
