WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States said it conducted air strikes on Wednesday night against the so-called Khorasan group, an al Qaeda-linked militant faction based in Syria, and said the group was plotting to attack Europe or the United States.
Separately, one U.S. official said a target of the strike was David Drugeon, a French-born militant and convert to Islam who some U.S. officials say is a bomb maker for the group. U.S. officials have not confirmed whether Drugeon was killed.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – One of the U.S. nurses who helped treat a Liberian man with Ebola in Texas last month defended her controversial decision to fly after treating the patient, saying she had not been barred from traveling and felt normal during her trip.
In a televised interview on Thursday, Amber Vinson, 29, also said she had received little training in handling patients with the virus that has ravaged West Africa, and had no experience with the protective gear needed for handling such cases before treating the Liberian, Thomas Duncan, who later died.
