Moving onto the latest on the Ebola outbreak
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued its highest-level alert for the crisis in West Africa.
That means more staff and resources will be diverted toward containing its spread.
It's the first time since a flu pandemic in 2009 that the agency has raised its alert to the highest level.
The Ebola virus is now feared to have spread to the Middle East, with the death of a 40-year-old Saudi man under observation for an Ebola infection.
New figures released by the W-H-O show in the period between Saturday and Monday there were 1-hundred-8 new cases of Ebola and 45 additional deaths in Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone pushing the death toll up to 9-hundred-32.
