A member of a district electoral commission holds a poster with portraits of candidates for Ukraine's parliamentary elections at a polling station in Kiev, on October 25, 2014Ukrainians were to vote Sunday in parliamentary elections overshadowed by a bloody pro-Russian uprising in the east, but described by President Petro Poroshenko as a historic chance to set the country on a pro-Western path. In his final address to the nation before polls opened, Poroshenko said Saturday that the election would "complete the transfer of power" begun in the revolution last February that overthrew Moscow-backed president Viktor Yanukovych. His Petro Poroshenko Bloc was forecast to emerge as the biggest party in the 450 seat legislature, although without an absolute majority, meaning he will have to form a coalition, probably with harder-line nationalists. For the first time since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Communist Party was not expected to enter parliament, symbolising what Poroshenko, elected president in May with 55 percent of the vote, hopes is an irreversible political shift.

Rescue workers carry out an Ebola precautionary emergency exercise on October 23, 2014 in Vysne Nemecke, SlovakiaMali authorities on Saturday scrambled to calm fears after Ebola claimed its first victim in the African country, a contagious toddler who took a 1,000-kilometre bus journey before being treated. The World Health Organization (WHO) warned the situation in Mali was an "emergency", and said in its latest Ebola situation report that the biggest outbreak on record has now killed 4,922 people, the vast majority of them in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, with 10,141 cases reported. The US states of New York and New Jersey ordered mandatory quarantine for medics who had treated victims of the disease in west Africa, after a doctor who had returned from the region became the first Ebola case in New York City. President Barack Obama told Americans Saturday that they must be "guided by the facts, not fear".
