ABUJA---Nigeria s President Good-
luck Jonathan promised yesterday that
the more than 200 Nigerian school-
girls kidnapped by Islamist militants
would "soon" return home, teenage
Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai
said after meeting him.
Malala, who became a global celebrity
after surviving being shot in the head
by the Taliban for campaigning for girls
education, was visiting Nigeria to sup-
port an international campaign for the
release of the teenage students abducted
in mid-April by the Islamist insurgent
group Boko Haram.
The Pakistani teenager, who turned
17 on Saturday, at the weekend met
parents of the schoolgirls snatched from
the northeastern village of Chibok by
Boko Haram fighters.
The Nigerian girls plight triggered
an international #BringBackOurGirls
Twitter campaign supported by
Michelle Obama and Angelina Jolie.
This drew global attention to the war
in Nigeria s northeast and the growing
security risk that Boko Haram poses
to Nigeria, Africa s leading energy pro-
But, with the girls still missing three
months after their April 14 kidnap,
Jonathan faces criticism at home and
abroad over the deteriorating security
"The president promised me ... that
the abducted girls will return to their
homes soon," Malala, who has called
the 219 missing students her "sisters",
told a news conference after a 45-
minute meeting with Jonathan at the
Malala said she would hold the
Nigerian leader to his pledge. "I will
from now be counting days and will
be looking. I can t stop this campaign
until I see these girls return back to
their families and continue their edu-
cation," she said. (Reuters)
Deep in the forests of southern Guinea, the first
victims fell ill with high fevers. People assumed it
was the perennial killer malaria and had no reason
to fear touching the bodies, as is the custom in tra-
Some desperate relatives brought their loved ones
to the distant capital in search of better medical care,
unknowingly spreading what ultimately was discovered
to be Ebola, one of the world s most deadly diseases.
Ebola, a hemorrhagic fever that can cause its victims
to bleed from the ears and nose, had never before
been seen in this part of West Africa where medical
clinics are few and far between. The disease has turned
up in at least two other countries---Liberia and Sierra
Leone---and 539 deaths have been attributed to the
outbreak that is now the largest on record.
The key to halting Ebola is isolating the sick, but
fear and panic have sent
some patients into hiding,
complicating efforts to stop
its spread. Ebola has
reached the capitals of all
three countries, and the
World Health Organisation
reported 44 new cases
including 21 deaths on Fri-
There has been "a gross
misjudgment across the
board in gauging the sever-
ity and scale of damage the
current Ebola outbreak can
unleash," the aid group
Plan International warned earlier this month.
"There are no cases from outside Africa to date.
The threat of it spreading though is very much there,"
said Dr Unni Krishnan, head of disaster preparedness
and response for the aid group.
Preachers are calling for divine intervention, and
panicked residents in remote areas have on multiple
occasions attacked the very health workers sent to
help them. In one town in Sierra Leone, residents par-
tially burned down a treatment center over fears that
the drugs given to victims were actually causing the
Activists are trying to spread awareness in the coun-
tryside where literacy is low, even through a song
penned about Ebola.
"It has no cure, but it can be prevented; let us fight
it together. Let s protect ourselves, our families and
our nation," sings the chorus.
"Do not touch people with the signs of Ebola," sings
musician and activist Juli Endee. "Don t eat bush meat.
Don t play with monkey and baboons. Plums that
bats have bitten or half-eaten, don t eat them."
Guinea first notified WHO about the emergence of
Ebola in March and soon after cases were reported in
Doctors Without Borders says it fears the number
of patients now being treated in Sierra Leone could
be "just the tip of the iceberg." Nearly 40 were reported
in a single village in the country s east. (ABCnews)
An ad campaign warning of the perils
of gambling that began as just another
bland public service announcement by
Singapore s government has turned into
fodder for international mockery, and left
authorities scrambling after Germany s
World Cup victory.
In the TV version of the ad, which
debuted last month when the World Cup
kicked off, a sullen young boy named Andy
tells his friends in the playground that his
father had used all of Andy s savings to bet
on Germany to win the tournament.
Sad piano music is cued and a message
is displayed: "Often, the people who suffer
from problem gambling aren t the gamblers."
The PSA wasn t lampooned until Germany
won its first match against Portugal, 4-0.
As the World Cup progressed and the Ger-
mans looked more and more like favorites
to win the title, the mocking of the ad inten-
sified, with many wondering if little Andy
and his dad were going to make a killing
on the bet.
After Germany s stunning 7-1 semifinal
drubbing of Brazil, the ad prompted ridi-
culing on The Tonight Show.
"Cheer up, kid, your dad bet on Germany,"
host Jimmy Fallon said. "He s so rich you
don t even need to go to college anymore."
Even Singapore s usually stoic politicians
could not resist taking a few pot shots.
Manpower Minister Tan Chuan-Jin wrote
on Facebook: "Looks like the boy s father
who bet all his savings on Germany will be
laughing all the way to the bank!"
But Singapore s National Council for
Problem Gambling refused to back down
and withdraw the campaign, which also
included radio spots, posters around the
country and banners on the council s Web
site. In a statement, it said selecting Germany
"injected a sense of realism in our messaging,
since no one will bet on a potentially losing

A model of a giant dead parrot lies on the South Bank in London to promote the live broadcast of the final Monty Python Live stage
show on July 20. Three sculptors spent more than two months creating the homage to the celebrated Norwegian Blue after the Dead
