MONROVIA, Liberia (AP) — Crowds celebrated in the streets of Liberia's capital on Saturday after authorities reopened a slum where tens of thousands of people had been barricaded for more than a week to contain the country's Ebola outbreak.
An outspoken lawmaker who declared an "Israel-free zone" in a northern English city suffered a suspected broken jaw in an attack believed to be linked to his support for the Palestinians, his party said on Saturday. George Galloway, who once lauded Saddam Hussein and criticised the 2003 U.S-led invasion that toppled the Iraqi leader, was attacked in west London on Friday night. "It is thought that the attack is connected to Mr Galloway's support for the Palestinian cause," the left-wing Respect Party said in a statement. A Respect spokesman said the incident appeared to be connected with Israel because the attacker had been shouting something about the Holocaust.
