Nigeria has been declared officially free of Ebola after six weeks with no new cases, the World Health Organization (WHO) says.
WHO representative Rui Gama Vaz, speaking in the capital Abuja, said it was a "spectacular success story".
Nigeria won praise for its swift response after a Liberian diplomat brought the disease there in July.
The outbreak has killed more than 4,500 people in West Africa, mostly in Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone.
An estimated 70% of those infected have died in those countries.
The WHO officially declared Senegal Ebola-free on Friday.
Meanwhile, European Union foreign ministers are meeting in Luxembourg to discuss how to strengthen their response to the threat posed by Ebola.
European countries have committed more than 500m euros (£400m; $600m) but the UK is pressing to double that amount.
The feud between rappers Iggy Azalea and Snoop Dogg has ended with an apology from Snoop and an acceptance from Iggy, but not before escalating to oh-no-he-didn't heights.
The social-media throwdown began last week when makeup-free paparazzi pics of the "Fancy" emcee surfaced online and Snoop promptly compared her fair skin and blond hair to that of an albino woman with cornrows.
Snoop, 42, real name Calvin Broadus, continued picking on her with a slew of escalating mean-spirited memes and posts making less-than-flattering comparisons.
Iggy, 24, real name Amethyst Amelia Kelly, responded to the bullying with since-deleted tweets that were captured by E! News.
"@snoopdogg why would you post such a mean pic on insta when you send your body guards to ask me for pictures every time we are at shows together?" she wrote. "My bodyguard stopped the fire truck that saved your friends life in canada when he almost burnt down the hotel ... And everytime I've spoken to you, you've always been nice as hell, I'm disappointed you'd be such an ass for no reason."
The world’s most paid athlete, Floyd Mayweather Jr. continues to grow his fortune with large money wagers on football.
After a year filled with disses, 50 Cent might just be done feuding with Floyd Mayweather.
“I don’t have bad intentions for Floyd,” the G-Unit General tells XXL. “I don’t want to see him lose. I don’t go to sleep and wake up like, ‘I hope you f–king lose, stupid.’ No, I already got past that when I said what I said. I’m already done dealing with that right there.”
Despite saying he’s done feuding with the boxer, 50 also elaborated on why he’s mocked Mayweather’s past relationship with model Shantel Jackson, who is now with Nelly.
“I don’t understand how you get to that point and it still be so f–ked up with the girls and sh-t like that,” he says. “There is no woman that I f–ked with that I wasn’t finished with before I finished the situation, since I had been successful. I don’t lose people to another person.”
50′s been trolling Mayweather all year, even dissing the fighter’s literacy, which is at least part of the reason he’s been called “The Ultimate Troll.”
Daniela Liverani suffered from a persistent nosebleed for over a month in which she thought it was because of a recent motorbike crash while travelling to Asia.
To her surprise, the British backpacker found out that there was a three-inch long leech that had been living in her nose for over a month. A few days after returning back home to Edinburgh, she saw a dark object in one of her nostrils that she thought was just dried up blood.
The 24-year-old explained,
"I tried to blow it out and grab it but I couldn't get a grip of him before he retreated back up my nose.
The current outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus running rampant in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia, and which has now reached land in America and Spain, is something for residents of Trinidad and Tobago to be seriously concerned about.
So far it has been reported there have been 7,500 confirm infections worldwide, with a death toll of 3,400 and counting
The Government stated it is putting things in place, like training, equipment, greater vigilance at ports of entry and earmarking of the Caura Hospital as a quarantine site, etc, but is that enough? Are we looking down the road at Carnival 2015, with thousands of visitors coming to our shores?
This virus is a global epidemic and we need to be proactive and protect ourselves. I think we should look at cancelling Carnival 2015 if this outbreak continues to wreak havoc around the world. If this virus was to reach our shores, it would be a catastrophe to our people and our economy. Our health care service is incapable of handling something of that magnitude.
I hope the Government and all concerned with Carnival can consider this and make an early call as to what we will do regarding Carnival 2015.
CONVICTED MURDERER BEAT HIS 64-YEAR-OLD MOTHER TO DEATH, AFTER BEING RELEASED FROM PRISON FOR 2 DAYS
A convicted murderer beat his mother to death during an argument, just two days after he was released from jail, according to authorities. The murder took place in her Atlantic City, New Jersey, home.
The police told The Press of Atlantic City that Steven Pratt, 45, is undergoing murder charges for a second time after he was released from jail for less than 48 hours.
Investigators discovered Gwendolyn Pratt, 64, dead in her home Sunday morning. They said she appeared to have died of severe head injuries. Steven Pratt was arrested in the home when they found his mother’s dead body.
Atlantic County Prosecutor Jim McClain said an autopsy performed on Gwendolyn’s body by the state’s medical examiner’s office determined she died of massive blunt injuries to the head.
Her son is being held on $1 million cash bail in the Atlantic County jail.
The Associated Press reports that Steven Pratt was released from prison Friday after serving 15 years of a 30-year sentence for first-degree murder.

An Alabama pastor has been canned after he shocked his flock by reportedly confessing from the pulpit that he has AIDS, had slept with church members, used drugs and misused funds.
Rev. Juan Demetrius McFarland of Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church in Montgomery confirmed to NBC affiliate WSFA that he made the admissions in a series of sermons that began in September.
Deacon Nathan Williams said McFarland was removed as leader on Oct. 5.
"He concealed from the church that he had knowingly engaged in adultery in the church building with female members of Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church while knowingly having AIDS," Williams said.
McFarland, who has been pastor for 21 years, could not be reached for comment on Thursday.
Montgomery Police Sgt. Denise Barnes said he is not under investigation because no one has made a complaint against McFarland. She said that in Alabama, spreading a sexually transmitted disease is a low-level misdemeanor.
The church has hired a lawyer.
"Our moves are going to come directly from counsel. We want peace and we want to do things right, legally," the deacon told WSFA. "We are not looking to hurt him. We are looking to get the church back."

Bobby Shmurda was arrested and released in NYC a few days back, for smoking a joint with two friends in Brooklyn.
The New York rap phenom was apparently enjoying a j with friends while double parked on a street in BK, when the cops arrested him and took him to jail for the night. As TMZ reports, sources close to the rapper believe that the cops are simply out to get the yougn'n on his grind. This isn't the "Shmoney Dance" rapper's first arrest since he blew up, back in June he was arrested for gun possession, however, in comparison, this cause for arrest seems much more minor.
Following his arrest, Shmurda posted the video below on Instagram (about four days ago). He captioned it, "So da bum ass cops locked me up yesterday Fa some bullshit made me miss [a show]."
Michael Phelps's comeback took a major hit on Monday, with USA Swimming suspending the 18-time Olympic champion for six months and forcing him to withdraw from next year's world championships.
Phelps also lost six months of funding from the sport's national governing body as a result of his second DUI arrest. The 29-year-old swimmer is banned from participating in USA Swimming-sanctioned meets through April 6, 2015.
USA Swimming said Phelps violated its Code of Conduct, and cited a section of its 2014 Rule Book in punishing him. Its executive committee approved the sanctions, which take effect immediately.
"Michael's conduct was serious and required significant consequences," said Chuck Wielgus, USA Swimming executive director. "We endorse and are here to fully support his personal development actions."
Phelps can still train with his North Baltimore club, but he had already qualified for the world championships in Russia next August, which is the biggest international meet leading up to the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics.
Phelps came out of retirement earlier this year with his sights set on competing at a fifth Olympics in Rio. Being barred from the world meet could put a serious dent in those ambitions.
His latest arrest came about a month after Phelps won three golds and two silvers at the Pan Pacific Championships in Australia. He had retired after the 2012 London Olympics, having won a record 18 gold medals and 22 medals in four games.
Phelps's monthly funding stipend of $1,750 will be halted for six months, costing him a total of $10,500. That is small change compared to the millions he earns through several major endorsements, including Aqua Sphere, Subway, Under Armour, Omega and Master Spas.
When you look up at the full moon on October 8th, it's going to look a bit different due to the total lunar eclipse. Rather than brightly reflecting sunlight, the moon will be reflecting light that has been filtered through Earth's umbra, making it appear rusty and red. This coloration has led some to call it a "Blood Moon." It is safe to view the eclipse with the naked eye, but viewing it through a pair of binoculars or a telescope will bring out a lot of the detail.
This eclipse is actually the second in a tetrad, spaced about six months apart. The first one appeared in April 2014. The next will occur in April 2015, followed by the conclusion of the tetrad in September 2015. This lunar eclipses actually takes place on the night of the Hunter's Moon, which is the name of the full moon that follows the Harvest Moon, closest to the northern autumnal equinox.
The moon will come into a partial eclipse beginning at 5:14 am EDT, and 61 minutes of totality will begin at 6:24 am EDT. Here is the viewing guide for the event:
