The American flag flutters in the breeze before the US Capitol, cocooned in scaffolding, October 28, 2014The US economy grew at a stronger-than-expected pace in the third quarter, lifted by lower imports and a surge in defense spending, according to government data released Thursday. The world's largest economy expanded at an annual rate of 3.5 percent in the July-September period, the Commerce Department said in its first estimate for the quarter.

It has banned tourists, put business groups on hold and is looking even more suspiciously than usual at every foreign face coming across its borders. (AP Photo/Wong Maye-E)PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — North Korea announced Thursday it will quarantine foreigners for 21 days over fears of the spread of the Ebola virus, even though no cases of the disease have been reported in the reclusive country, or anywhere in Asia, and very few foreigners are allowed to enter.
