• US to withdraw troops from Ebola mission in West Africa


    WASHINGTON D.C.: The US military plans to pull out most troops from West Africa that were deployed to help stem the outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus, the Pentagon said on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila), ending a five-month mission. A force that at one point reached 2,800 has been scaled back to about 1,300 troops and “nearly all will return by April 30,” Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby said in a statement.  The announcement came as the epidemic has begun to recede.
