CONGO: The current Ebola outbreak has spread into Ituri province, the health ministry reported yesterday, citing 57 cases of haemorrhagic fever — 30 of them confirmed as Ebola. Of 41 reported deaths, 14 have been confirmed as Ebola.
A vaccination campaign is under way in neighbouring North Kivu province, in the north-east of the country.
However, the campaign is hampered by the presence of armed groups in the densely populated region close to the Uganda border.
POLAND: The European Union stepped up pressure on Warsaw yesterday over its Supreme Court legislation, giving it a month to submit.

A general election is scheduled for October 7 in Republika Srpska.

Mr Gogarty, who derided the sentence as a holiday, said: “I’m beside myself about this. I’m still here, still hurting ... and not a single, solitary word to say sorry.”
