Countries should get ready to handle a possible outbreak of the deadly hemorrhagic fever in case it spreads further as people from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea move across borders, Gates said at a breakfast meeting sponsored by the newspaper Politico and Bank of America #Yahoo! #content #wcnts #wcntn #typeof-social #undefined #cookie #rco #rch #typeof-registered

At least 31 people feared dead after Japan volcano erupts

TOKYO (Reuters) Thirtyone people were presumed dead on Sunday near the peak of a Japanese volcano that erupted unexpectedly a day earlier while it was packed with hikers out to admire autumn foliage, sending a huge cloud of ash and rock tumbling down its slopes. Police said the 31 people were found in "cardiopulmonary" arrest but declined to confirm their deaths pending a formal examination, as per Japanese custom. An official in the area said rescue efforts had been called off due to rising levels of toxic gas near the peak, as well as approaching nightfall. #Yahoo! #wcnts #wcntn #typeof-social #undefined #rco #aut #typeof-registered
