The battle against the ebola outbreak that has killed more than 4,500 people is being lost, the head of the World Bank has warned. Speaking after the United Nations revealed it had received less than 40% of the nearly $1bn ($600m) it had requested to fight the deadly disease, World Bank chief Jim Yong Kim blamed a lack of international solidarity for the failure to stop its spread.

“We are losing the battle,” he told reporters in Paris.

“Certain countries are only worried about their own borders,” he told reporters in Paris.  International anxieties over the spread of Ebola were

highlighted as a cruise ship carrying a lab technician who worked with samples taken from an infected nurse in Dallas was stopped from docking in Belize and Mexico.  “It is the first time that this has happened, and it was decided the ship should not dock as a preventative measure against Ebola,” Erce Barron, port authority director in Quintana Roo, said.

Meanwhile, a vomiting woman outside the Pentagon sparked a scare in Washington, illustrating concerns in the US as questions continue to be asked about the infection of two nurses who treated a Liberian man who died at a Texas hospital. The Obama administration has appointed an ‘ebola czar’ to co-ordinate the government’s response to the outbreak.   It also asked three biological laboratories to submit plans for making the experimental drug ZMapp, which  ran out after it was given to several medical workers infected while working in West Africa. Although it has never been subjected to a clinical trial, the labs have been asked to submit budgets and timetables for production. As part of European efforts to stop the spread, France will start screening air passengers for Ebola today.

Air France flight attendants have also called for a halt to all flights from Guinea, one of the three hardest-hit countries. The daily Paris-Conakry flight “carries a serious risk of spreading the epidemic, particularly in our country,” a statement from the flight crew and commercial staff unions said. The United States, Britain and Canada have already launched screenings at airports for passengers from Ebola-hit areas.

Israel to be tried by UN for War Crimes


The panel is to report by March 2015 to the UN Human Rights Council

The panel is to report by March 2015 to the UN Human Rights Council

The United Nations has named experts to an international commission of inquiry into possible human rights violations and war crimes committed by both sides during Israel’s military offensive in the Gaza Strip.

Israel responded to Monday’s announcement, dismissing the inquiry as a UN Human Rights Council “kangaroo court”. Sami Abu Zuhri, Hamas spokesman in Gaza, said: “Hamas welcomes the decision to form an investigation committee into the war crimes committed by the occupation ([srael] against Gaza and it urges that it begin work as soon as possible.” The UN statement said the independent team will investigate “all violations of international humanitarian law and international human rights law … in the context of the military operations conducted since 13 June 2014.” William Schabas, a Canadian professor of international law, will head the panel whose other members are Doudou Diene, a Senegalese veteran UN human rights expert and Amal Alamuddin, a British-Lebanese lawyer. Alamuddin later denied she would participate in the inquiry. “I am honored to have received the offer, but given existing commitments – including eight ongoing cases – unfortunately could not accept this role,” she said in a statement. The panel is to report by March 2015 to the UN Human Rights Council. Israel, which is not a member to the council, has long accused the 47-member state forum of bias against it. A month of war, marked by Israeli air strikes on Gaza and rockets fired by Hamas fighters into Israel, has killed 1,938 Palestinians and 67 Israelis while devastating wide tracts of densely populated Gaza.

Defying international law

Navi Pillay, the top UN human rights official, said on July 31 she believed Israel was deliberately defying international law in its military offensive in Gaza and that world powers should hold it accountable for possible war crimes. Israel has attacked homes, schools, hospitals, Gaza’s only power plant and UN premises in apparent violation of the Geneva Conventions, said Pillay, a former UN war crimes judge. Hamas fighters in Gaza have violated international humanitarian law by firing rockets indiscriminately into Israel, Pillay said. Israeli and Palestinian negotiators resumed indirect talks mediated by Egypt on Monday on ending the war, Egypt’s state news agency said, after a new 72-hour truce appeared to be holding.
