Hundreds of residents of a Liberian slum lined up to receive rice and water from government officials Thursday in their neighborhood which was sealed off from the rest of the capital in an attempt to halt the spread of Ebola. Security forces erected barbed-wire wrapped barricades on Wednesday to cut off West Point. The current outbreak in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea and Nigeria is the largest ever, and officials have said that treatment centers are filling up faster than new ones can be opened or expanded. This leaves the sick packing hallways, potentially infecting more people.
Despite a prosecutor's warnings that he poses a flight risk, a deputy United Nations ambassador from the Dominican Republic facing U.S. charges over a bribery scheme had his bail set at $2 million on Friday. A federal magistrate judge in Manhattan ruled that Francis Lorenzo, who was arrested on Tuesday, must also live under house arrest with his mother after bail conditions are met and waive diplomatic immunity from future arrest. The decision by U.S. Magistrate Judge Henry Pitman came over the objections of prosecutor Daniel Richenthal, who said the ongoing investigation had unearthed evidence that Lorenzo received even more bribes than authorities initially alleged.
Prosecutors said a bank robbery suspect who sparked a massive manhunt when he fled a Virginia hospital with a guard's gun was sentenced to 32 years in prison on Friday. The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Virginia said in a statement that Wossen Assaye, 43, of Arlington, Virginia, was also sentenced in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Virginia, to five years of supervised release once he is freed from prison. Assaye triggered a nine-hour manhunt on March 31 when he apparently freed himself from shackles at a hospital in Washington's Virginia suburbs. He assaulted a guard, grabbed her gun, pointed it at a second guard and pulled the first guard down a hallway at gunpoint. He fled wearing a hospital gown and carjacked two vehicles before he was arrested in Washington.

Eight inmates on death row in Arkansas have been granted a new but short-term lease on life by a judge. An Arkansas judge has granted a state-wide stay of executions at their legal request. Judge Wendell Griffen of the Pulaski County Circuit court accepted the argument of lawyers for the inmates who are challenging a recent secrecy law. The law protects the identity of vendors which provide the state with drugs for lethal injection. The state has not committed a execution since 2005, but they had scheduled two for Oct. 21. The Arkansas General Assembly enacted the statue challenged in court earlier this year.
