A general view of Emory University Hospital in AtlantaBy David Beasley ATLANTA (Reuters) - Two American aid workers, both seriously ill after being infected with the deadly Ebola virus in Liberia, will be flown to the United States and treated in isolation at an Atlanta hospital, officials said on Friday. A plane equipped to transport Dr. Kent Brantly and missionary Nancy Writebol can carry only one patient back at a time, and Christian relief group Samaritan's Purse said it did not know who would return first. "We have learned that we will be receiving a patient with Ebola at Emory University Hospital on Saturday," said Holly Korschun, spokeswoman for the facility where they will be treated. Officials said bringing the stricken aid workers to the United States would not put the American public at risk.

Palestinians look at an unexploded Israeli shell that landed on the main road outside the town of Deir Al-Balah in the central Gaza StripBy Nidal al-Mughrabi and Dan Williams GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Hamas claimed responsibility on Saturday for a deadly Gaza Strip ambush in which an Israeli army officer may have been captured, but said the incident likely preceded and therefore had not violated a U.S.- and U.N.-sponsored truce. The statement by Hamas's armed wing, the Qassam Brigades, appeared aimed at preempting any intensification of Israel's 25-day-old Gaza offensive as well as deflecting international blame for the collapse of Friday's ceasefire. Israel says Palestinian gunmen stormed out of a tunnel to ambush its infantrymen in southern Rafah a 9.30 a.m., one and a half hours after the halt to hostilities came into effect, killing two and hauling away an army lieutenant, Hadar Goldin. Hamas said that if Goldin had been captured he may have been killed in Israeli hostilities that followed the raid.
