  • Sierra Leone's top Ebola doctor dies from virus

    By Umaru Fofana and Adam Bailes FREETOWN (Reuters) - The doctor leading Sierra Leone's fight against the worst Ebola outbreak on record died from the virus on Tuesday, the country's chief medical officer said.

Ebola is believed to have killed 672 people in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone since the outbreak began in February, according to the World Health Organisation.

    Today in New Jersey: Cops Shut Down Wedding After 300 Guests Brawl

    Here's how to turn an immaculately planned dream wedding into a nightmare: Start a brawl that spills out into the street, requires multiple police departments to quell, and prematurely ends the reception. A wedding at Jacques Reception Center in Middletown, New Jersey, erupted into chaos Sunday night, when about 300 people got involved in a massive, violent, and loud brawl that ended with two people arrested. Though the reception center boasts "the warmth and charm of old world Rome," the guests may have confused the setting for Sparta, dining more in hell than in celebration, as neighbors in the area told police they could hear the screaming from three blocks away. "As officers from Middletown were attempting to gain control of the situation, approximately 300 people became involved in the altercation which consisted of fighting, yelling and screaming and people refusing to leave the area and returned inside to the reception," Middletown Police Department spokesman Steve Dollinger said in a statement.

    U.S. Senate bill proposes sweeping curbs on NSA surveillance

    Senator Patrick Leahy introduced legislation on Tuesday to ban the U.S. government's bulk collection of Americans' telephone records and Internet data and narrow how much information it can seek in any particular search. The bill, which has White House backing, goes further than a version passed in May by the U.S. House of Representatives in reducing bulk collection and immediately drew warmer response from privacy advocates and technology companies. Revelations last year by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden prompted President Barack Obama to ask Congress in January to rein in the bulk collection and storage of records of millions of U.S. domestic telephone calls.
