  • WHO: Nigeria's Ebola outbreak is officially over

    Updated: 35 min ago

    LONDON (AP) — The World Health Organization has declared that Nigeria is now free of Ebola. In an update issued Monday, the U.N. health agency said the country's containment of the lethal disease was a "spectacular success story." The announcement comes after 42 days have passed — twice the disease's maximum incubation period — since the last case in Nigeria tested negative. WHO said Nigeria had traced nearly every contact of Ebola patients in the country, all of whom were linked to the country's first patient, a Liberian man who arrived with symptoms in Lagos and later died. Nigeria reported 20 cases of Ebola, including eight deaths.

  • Do remains belong to missing Virginia student?

    Updated: 51 min ago

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — Police blocked off roads, sifted through leaves and scoured a rural area where they found remains that could be missing University of Virginia student Hannah Graham. It's not clear how long it will take authorities to identify the remains they discovered over the weekend, about 12 miles from campus. Police let Graham's parents know about the discovery before they publicly released the information and instead of continuing the search for Graham, they focused Sunday on looking for clues and evidence in a heavily wooded area of Albemarle County that is home to horse farms. The last person seen with Graham, 32-year-old Jesse Leroy Matthew Jr., has been charged with abduction with intent to defi

  • Japan trade, justice ministers quit amid scandals

    Updated: 1 hr ago

    TOKYO (AP) — Japan's trade and justice ministers resigned Monday after allegations they misused campaign funds in the biggest setback so far for Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's conservative administration. The two ministers were among five women Abe named to his Cabinet in a reshuffle early last month. Their resignations may help to control the damage to his relatively high popularity ratings, but are a blow to efforts to promote women in politics and business as part of economic revival policies. Yuko Obuchi, daughter of a former prime minister and a rising star in the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, resigned early Monday as trade minister, saying she needed to focus on an investigation into discrepancies in accounting for el

  • Joko Widodo sworn in as Indonesia's new president

    Updated: 3 hr ago

    JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — Joko Widodo completed a journey from riverside shack to presidential palace on Monday, cheered through the streets following his inauguration by tens of thousands of ordinary Indonesians in a reminder to the opposition-controlled parliament of the strong grass-roots support that swept him to power. The 53-year-old must make tough decisions to stand a chance of boosting economic growth in Indonesia, a sprawling nation of 250 million people. Fears that any reforms he tries to enact could be blocked by a hostile opposition led by the Suharto-era general he defeated in July's election have seen the rupiah weaken and stock market fall in recent weeks.

    DENVER (AP) — Peyton Manning's receivers played keep-away with his milestone memento and the NFL's new leader in career touchdown passes toyed with the San Francisco 49ers in the Denver Broncos' 42-17 victory Sunday night. Manning went into the showdown two TDs shy of Brett Favre's record of 508, and threw four touchdown passes to reach 510. "It's special because of the way our team played," said Manning, who surpassed Favre's mark with an 8-yard strike to Demaryius Thomas late in the second quarter. As he went to retrieve the ball, his teammates had some fun. Thomas tossed the ball over Manning to Emmanuel Sanders, who lobbed it to Wes Welker.
