    1. Ebola: U.S. restricts airport arrivals

    Passengers flying to the United States from three Ebola-stricken countries will have to fly into one of five designated* American airports for additional screening*, including having their temperature taken, U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson announced on October 21.

    Starting on October 22 U.S. time, airline passengers coming from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea must fly into New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey, Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, Washington Dulles International Airport or Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

    2. North Korea frees detained American

    North Korea has freed one of three Americans detained in the country, and in a surprise move allowed a Pentagon* plane to land in Pyongyang to fly him home.

    Jeffrey Fowle, who was arrested earlier this year and is in apparent good health, “has been allowed to depart the DPRK,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said on October 21, adding the 56-year-old was already on his way home.

    3. Russia, Ukraine fail to agree on gas supplies

    Russia and Ukraine failed to reach an accord* on gas supplies for the coming winter in EU-brokered talks on October 21 but agreed to meet again in Brussels in a week in the hope of ironing out* problems over Kiev’s ability to pay.

    After a day of talks widely expected to be the final word, European Energy Commissioner Guenther Oettinger told a news conference that the three parties agreed the price Ukraine would pay Russia’s Gazprom — US$385 per 1,000 cubic meters — as long as it paid in advance for the deliveries.

    But Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said Moscow was still seeking assurances* on how Kiev would find the money to pay Moscow for its energy.

    4. Japan jails man for 3-D printed gun

    A Japanese court on October 20 jailed a man for two years for making guns with a 3-D printer in what is believed to be a first in a nation with strict gun controls.

    Yoshitomo Imura, 28, was found guilty of making two guns at his home and publishing a video online detailing the process, said the Yokohama District Court.

    5. Canada shocked by fatal attacks

    Canada Prime Minister Stephen Harper vowed to redouble the country’s fight against “terrorist organizations” abroad after a reported Islam rampaged* through parliament, shocking the capital city.

    A gunman killed a soldier at the National War Memorial in Ottawa on October 22 before storming into the Center Block of Parliament.

    He died after dozens of shots rang out a few yards away from where Harper was talking to his legislators.

    6. ‘Foreign hands’ behind attack in Egypt

    Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi said on Saturday that an assault* on an army checkpoint in the Sinai Peninsula that killed 31 troops was a “foreign-funded operation.”

    El-Sissi said there are foreign powers that want to “break the back of Egypt.” He vowed to take drastic measures to uproot* the militants and said Egypt is engaged in an “extensive war” that will last a long time.

    7. New skydive world record set

    A skydiving* Google executive is safely back on Earth after jumping out of a giant balloon floating in the stratosphere more than 40 km above New Mexico, the United States, a feat that broke the sound barrier* and shattered* a world altitude record.

    Alan Eustace, a senior vice president at the Mountain View, California-based company, was lifted up 41,419 meters by an enormous balloon shortly before dawn on October 24. After spending about 30 minutes “experiencing the wonders of the stratosphere,” he plunged* toward the earth.(SD-Agencies)
