Liberia confirmed a third new case of the deadly Ebola virus on Thursday, as the disease re-emerges nearly two months after the outbreak was declared over in the West African nation, a senior health official said. Liberia, where 4,800 people have died out of the 11,200 killed in the West African Ebola outbreak, was declared Ebola-free on May 9 even as the disease has continued to infect new victims in neighbouring Sierra Leone and Guinea.
The BBC said it will cut more than 1,000 jobs because it expects to receive 150 million pounds ($234 million) less than forecast from the licence fee next financial year as viewers turn off televisions and watch programmes on the Internet. Every UK household with a television has to pay 145.50 pounds a year to the BBC, a public service broadcaster which was founded in 1922. "The licence fee income in 2016/17 is now forecast to be 150 million pounds less than it was expected to be in 2011," the BBC said in a statement.
