A US photojournalist who was infected with Ebola in Liberia is now free of the deadly virus and will go home on Wednesday, the Nebraska hospital treating him said.
"Recovering from Ebola is a truly humbling feeling," Ashoka Mukpo, who was working as a freelance cameraman for NBC News in Monrovia when he fell ill, said in a hospital statement Tuesday.
"Too many are not as fortunate and lucky as I've been. I'm very happy to be alive," he said.
The virus has killed more than 4,500 people in West Africa this year, and stoked fears that it could spread beyond the three worst-hit countries — Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea — and become a global threat.
Eight people, including Mukpo, have or are being treated for Ebola in the United States, one of whom, a man from Liberia, has died.
Mukpo added in the statement that he was not sure how he contracted the disease.
A German security team is set to visit Kenya and Somalia to track down a citizen described as an international terrorist.
The man identified as Mark Schillinger is believed to be funding extremism among East African youths. Communication between Kenya, the German embassy in Nairobi and the Office of the German Defence Attaché, informed Kenya of the visit.
It said a senior official in the German Ministry of Defence, Dr Ralf Brauksiepe, would visit Nairobi and Mogadishu for the investigations.
The team was initially expected in Nairobi on Sunday and Monday, but the embassy Tuesday said the visit had been postponed. No new dates were given.
The head of Press and Cultural Affairs at the German embassy, Mr Martin Falk, said there were problems with the initial date, adding, the new date had not been fixed.
Schillinger is suspected to be operating between Kenya and Somalia under an assumed name.
Anti-terrorism detectives said he had adopted a Somali name and acquired fake identification documents.
A report issued early this month revealed that poverty and lack of jobs among the youth exposed them to radical views and extremism.
