Liberian West Point Slum Residents Riot In Latest Ebola Controversy
Residents living in the West Point district in Monrovia, Liberia, have set-off a revolt, that was put down by military officials, following a controversial government policy that seals-off where they live. It is a desperate Liberian government effort to stem the spread of the Ebola virus. The riots began when a commissioner was allowed to leave the district with her family, while the rest of them were not.
Young men, mostly teenagers numbering in the hundreds, took matters into their own hands and revolted against the government tactic by throwing rocks, and other debris at police and military personnel, who tried to keep them quarantined.
Truce talks between Israel and Hamas collapsed on Tuesday afternoon after three rockets were fired from Gaza and exploded in open areas near Be’er Sheva.
Following the rocket fire, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recalled the Israeli delegation from Cairo, and instructed the IDF to resume attacking targets in the Gaza Strip.
Sources in Gaza reported that Israeli warplanes struck farming areas near Beit Lahiya in the northern Gaza Strip, in the Zeitoun neighborhood to the east, in the Almasder village east of the Alamaazi refugee camp in the central Strip, and in Khan Younis to the south. So far, no casualties were reported. Hamas termed the strikes as an “Israeli breach of the truce.”

THE COLD WAR - PART 1: From World War to Cold War
Why is the U.S. dropping bombs to defend the Kurdish city, two and a half years after American troops left Iraq? Steve Coll explains: http://nyr.kr/1ykSe1W
“Obama’s defense of Erbil is effectively the defense of an undeclared Kurdish oil state whose sources of geopolitical appeal—as a long-term, non-Russian supplier of oil and gas to Europe, for example—are best not spoken of in polite or naïve company.”
