NEW YORK (AP) — A doctor who became New York City's first Ebola patient was praised for getting treatment immediately upon showing symptoms, and health officials stressed that the nation's most populous city need not fear his wide-ranging travel in the days before his illness began.
ONCUPINAR, Turkey (AP) — The Turkish border crossing of Oncupinar, an hour's drive from the embattled Syrian city of Aleppo, is a chaotic buzz of people waiting to pass into one of the most violent regions in the world.

By Andy Bruce and David Milliken LONDON (Reuters) - Britain still looks on track to outpace other advanced economies this year after rapid growth eased only slightly in the three months to September, but a euro zone slowdown could hamper the recovery in the run-up to next May's election. While the pace of growth was still above Britain's long-run average, the upturn slowed in the service industries that dominate the economy, and manufacturing output rose at its weakest pace in 18 months. Few economists expected Britain's previous quarterly economic growth rate - one of the highest in almost a decade - would be sustained. Finance minister George Osborne welcomed the data but said growth could slow further because of external factors.
