Britain on Wednesday held a top-level government meeting to discuss the spread of the highly-contagious Ebola virus in West Africa, saying the outbreak was a threat it needed to respond to. International concern has risen about the virus, which has killed 672 people in West Africa since February, after the first recorded case of the disease in Africa's most populous country, Nigeria. "In terms of the UK the issue is about the possibility of somebody who has contracted the disease in Africa getting sick here," he said after the meeting, which health experts, scientists and other ministers attended. "It is not about the disease spreading in the UK because frankly we have different standards of infection control procedure that would make that most unlikely." He said that ministers had discussed what additional measures Britain could take to contain the outbreak in West Africa, and what steps needed to be taken in case a British national in the area contracted the disease.

Dermer, Israel's ambassador to the United States, is asserting that criticism of Secretary of State John Kerry's peacemaking efforts is traceable to Israel's "very rambunctious democracy," and not Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Dermer said Netanyahu appreciates Kerry's efforts to bring about a cease-fire in the Gaza war. He adds, quote, "This is not coming from the prime minister."
